  • Its collections include argentina and international contemporary production from the ' 40s. It also presents works of concrete art, Madi, Neo-figurativo and the informalist movement. Samples of Argentine and international photographers; industrial, graphic design and the latest trends in contemporary art. At this time is being presented "Revelations about paper 1922-1981", unpublished pieces on paper of Antonio Berni. Not to be missed.

  • 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.
