  • I went several times to the MALBA, is a very attractive place, there's always interesting samples of high level. It is a great option for Latin American and world artists. It is always surprising, although I am not an expert in art, every now and then I like to visit it. You learn a lot about art.

  • The beautiful Museum, pretty good content. I liked especially the painter Anita malfati and the sculptor Alice penalva.

  • MALBA is located in a very nice area, but also always has interesting collections and important temporary samples, in addition to its permanent collection with great international and Argentine painters

  • For someone who only enjoys seeing what's there, but is not an art buff, I'm inclined to say I liked it. I did expect more from it, as it was very small. However, there was some interesting art projects. It's a bit pricey for the size. You wouldn't spend more than an hour there. Get ready for a quick visit where you can pretend to be smart just for being there ;)
  • 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....
  • Simply the best collection of Latin American art there is. Their Remedios Varo is my favorite. Also, I was very lucky to see the Yokohama Ono exhibition on Oct 2016. Got me by the gut.
  • 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
  • Great place. Check the expo about dictatorships around latin america.
