  • Excellent museum! The Argentinian art is spectacular. Permanent collection and temporary exhibition equally desirable. The museum is manageable and well laid out. The “Welcome Plan” is a easy way to go through the museum. I’ll definitely visit again whenever I am able.
  • Beautiful, wide variety of art styles and artists. I especially enjoyed the Norah Burges exhibit. However, most of the text was in Spanish so I couldn't read about the pieces of art. Also, I wish the layout was better thought-out. Overall, would recommend to see different styles of art.
  • This museum was more impressive than we had anticipated. It is home to a vast collection of fine arts, from various parts of the world, as well as around South America. Very worth the visit. We also were able.to enter for free. Not sure if there is always no cost.
  • I’m only giving 4/5 because of the lack of translation and audio aids for other languages! I love that they actually do a discount when there is temporary unavailable exhibit rooms. Love the place! I’ve been 5 times in 2 years :)
  • Great museum, well curated. It's the richest museum in art, a variety of styles showcasing Argentinian classical art as well as European artist. The museum had some of my favourite paintings depicting a history pre colonialism and also showcasing the effects of Spanish colonialism on the indigenous communities. It's a beautiful museum, worth paying for.
