    This museum is a good stop for lovers of modern art and in your collection are big names like Mondrian, Berni, Iommi and Forner. In comparison to the neighboring Museum, the MACBA, the Museum of modern art offers a longer experience, even by the number of works currently. In August 2017, the value of the input was 30 pesos and, if you're a student (even Brazilian!), don't forget to bring your membership card or proof of student, as in this case, admission is free!

    Don't expect a good collection of modern art. some interesting temporary exhibitions. Two good museums are Nacional de Bellas Artes and MALBA  more »

    It recently hosted a traveling exhibition of Picasso drawings. It was really wonderful. It always surprises us with much art.

    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.

    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.
