  • The museum has a vast collection of art, both classical and modern. The building is very nice - especially since the renovation. The entrance is free of charge. Next time I'm in Buenos Aires I will absolutely come back!
  • Excellent art gallery! Whenever I am in Buenos Aires I like to take a leisurely walk through Recoleta, through the parks with the flowering Jacaranda. I always enjoy to see my favorite artworks and view the latest temporary exhibitions of which the artists works are beautifully displayed.You can purchase souvenirs and also brochures of the latest exhibition. It is free admission.
  • Free museum worth a visit if you are in the area. The modern exhibition upstairs is more impressive. None of the older works really stood out as unique.
  • Sublime collections composed of works of art authored by renowned artists from Argentina and Europe. At the time of my visit the museum lacked any guided tours and some of the collections were composed of furniture and personal effects of a wealthy Argentinian family of the 19th century. These collection, while very beautiful, lacked the impact and majesty of the Rodin sculptures and the Goya paintings. Also a point in its favor is that it has no entrance fee.
  • It’s was for free. Unbelievable how many guards must be there. The welcoming guy was rude so I wouldn’t go in if I have had to pay.
