  • I liked it much. The day that went had a shows of Picasso of who know something of his work, and was very nice see it in my country. Arrived just for the visit guided, that was very educational and informative. However there was much effort to listen to the Guide, since outside the Group (who were about 30) was much hubbub in the room (children screaming, parents challenging them, etc.), we see that the soundproofing of the space is rather poor. There are few works in the permanent collection and the gift shop is not worthy of a Museum of these characteristics.

  • The year last went to see "the Menesunda" of Marta Minujin, that I loved. Today I went to see the retrospective exhibition of Picasso (excellent) and if out bit I found that, simultaneously, also displayed drawings of Berni... extraordinary! The exhibition permanent of the Museum not is what more I like, but the art is subjective... equal recommend inform is, before go, what exhibitions there. Sooner or later you can tour the neighborhood...

  • Inside a building recycled is opened this museum that always offers samples both national as international of high level. Is that will be in parts to attach a wing and added a coffee and enlarge the shop. It has a ramp, lift, large capacity, good air conditioning

  • 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.
