Admire a small but well-curated collection of modern art at Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires. The museum's collection contains paintings, sculptures, and more; highlights include works by Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, Emilio Pettoruti, and many other important Latin American artists. The museum also contains space for temporary displays, while its cultural center hosts constantly updated exhibits and events on art, film, and music. Be sure to admire the angular architecture of the museum itself: the design was chosen through an open competition, with three young Argentine architects taking the first prize.

  • The Museum is worth to be visited! Has the work Abaporu, in addition to other works. Worth the cost benefit.

  • Visited on Monday, July 4th with my fiancée and really enjoyed ourselves. The Yoko Ono exhibit was both a surreal and visceral experience, and left us both affected. By what we weren't sure. And the permanent collection was impressive as well. A must see....
  • Great art gallery, interesting Latin American exhibition. The Yoko Ono event was on when I was there and it was very good. The building itself is very modern. One word of caution - The attached restaurant is a bit of a rip off. The food is ok and the waiters bustle around but aren't very effecient. The bill had 70 p for table service plus they pressed for a tip to be added to the bill
  • Most of the museum was closed Monday with the exception of the special exhibit which was 100 pesos so we didn't do it and a small exhibit on the lower floor. That exhibit was neat but I'm not sure that it's permanent. It was the only museum partially open that day so that's in its favor too.
  • Well worth a visit, beautiful building and amazing art on display. We send a good 2 hours looking through the exhibitions. It was 90 pesos each to enter. Headed the the restaurant Marcelo Dolce for lunch pre entering the Museum, very nice and lovely setting. Lots of choices on the menu, however is extremely expensive paying 140 pesos for a coca cola.
  • My favorite art retreat in Buenos Aires. You can always find inspiration here. Artistically they hold amazing exhibitions all year round. The museum itself, architecture wise, has a lot to give, mostly to photographers and design lovers. There is also this lovely restaurant-cafe with a cute green space, perfect to read and enjoy all the books you couldn't avoid shopping at Malba's own bookshop.
