  • This is my kind of art, between lights, all exhibitions, talks, moderate price and the wave that we ended up at the moment, see La Menesunda was an experience that made me love going to museums and leaving the MAMBA with a special place in my brain.

  • Located in San Telmo district, the building is beautiful and very nice displays. We were fortunate to get an exhibition of Picasso and the works of other artists are pretty inspiring too. for those who like modern art, is an Oasis.

  • I've probably had more (solitary) fun here than anywhere else in Buenos Aires. Malba gets the big international names but this is the place to go to explore Argentine art and artists, curated by the adventurous and a little bit mischievous Victoria Noorthoorn. Pro tip: If there's a video or film showing, take the time to see it. Seems to be her specialty. I've been rewarded more times than I can remember. Also, this museum is in San Telmo, my favorite barrio, with plenty to see, do, and eat all around. There's nothin' near Malba!
  • Fantastic collection. The place to go if you're interested in the Argentinean modern art, early XX onward.
  • A local and national treasure. We were amazed at the well curated exhibits with extensive historical and cultural contexts explained. I lovely snack and coffee bar as well.
  • Great place - Great Art only $20pesos and they have free wifi
  • Modern art museum. Would come back.
