  • It does have a nice tree-shaded patio with a restaurant which is open in spite of the fact that the museum itself is closed. The "abierto" sign outside refers, I guess, to the café.  more »
  • The Museum is located within the circuit of the palermo Lake, a privileged location facing the rose garden park, Lake palermo and the railroad tracks behind. The Museum even if it's not big has 3 rooms of which today 2 are empty. Enter one is greeted by 1 employee quite selfless, which provides no information, and serves in a bad mood. The Museum today has few 10 works. Very little for a National Museum. Does not have seats to rest or simply appreciate the works, information posters are guys... is not a good experience. The entrance leaves $10 (less than 1 u$ s) which makes difficult its maintenance. Has a spacious garden with a cute bar, surrounded by of some sculptures that make a space very nice. A shame to not tell with more works.

  • The Museum is exceptionally located in the forests of Palermo. It contains only works of Argentine artists who mostly have an exquisite sensitivity, reflecting the social reality of different periods in painting.

  • Yesterday 18:40 I went to the Museum for the first time to see the sample of the "Festival of lights" on photography. Not only it shows not was when figure until the 30 / 09 / 16 but I said that the Museum already closed to them 19 hs, when figure to them 20 hs in all those web sites. I don't understand why not let me go even to see other samples, felt a total disregard and want to not go no more places as well. A pity huge because I read super positive reviews of the place but it was not my case.
