  • Nice collection of contemporary Latin American artists, in a modern museum with a beautiful architecture. The Brazilian artists are very well represented, not only by the selected names, in particular by the selected works is a small museum, which allows making a quick visit

  • I just went to meet this museum on my second trip to BsAs, and put it as one of the must-see attractions of the city. I found it so interesting and relevant as the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. The fact that Latin American works, valuing the regional art, is very exciting! And there's a bit of history, politics and related to works of art, each gallery. There is the Abaporu, Tarsila do Amaral, among so many other works super interesting and relevant.

  • 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.
