  • I was working in an event, two-day Museum. I could not take it whole but yes vi the ground floor room. There was a very interesting photo exhibition, very well prepared. I loved the staircase that leads to the first floor. A true work of art. The Museum is very close to San Telmo, worth it.

  • Good temporary exhibitions are not necessarily all accessible to all on the 3 currently in place (November 2017) one we excited: Thomas saraceno on cobwebs. This artist has introduced hundreds of spiders in a huge room and let her get real living sculptures. Exceptional!

  • While artistic samples which were exhibited were not our complete satisfaction the visit was very pleasant. The building where this museum is housed is a historic building that dates back to early last century and functioned there once a very important tobacco in our country, but from the year 1987 went on to become the known M.A.M.B.A. The facilities are easily accessible even to people with different abilities. I am sure that there is no opportunity for an upcoming visit to this beautiful Museum.

  • It was an interesting visit to this three story Art museum. Honestly some of the exhibits seemed average and even ridiculous. But the best one is the spider web exhibit on the second floor. It's truly unique and a master piece. There is a souvenir shop, lockers for the bags and washrooms.
  • Its unique and its amazing.. I enjoy visiting this museum.. I would recommend to everyone traveling to BA..
  • Underwhelming (sorry). Not nearly as interesting or inspiring as other modern art museums I've visited
  • 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.
  • Fantastic collection. The place to go if you're interested in the Argentinean modern art, early XX onward.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
