Palais de Glace-Salas Nacionales de Cultura, Buenos Aires

4.2
Take in some contemporay art in a historical building at Palais de Glace-Salas Nacionales de Cultura. Upon construction in 1911, the Belle Epoque building (styled after its Parisienne namesake) served as an ice skating rink and social club, then later as a tango dance hall. Remodelling in the 1930s altered the exterior and converted the interior space into an art gallery; today, it hosts rotating exhibits of paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, and ceramics.

  • A place that was originally a track of skating at the beginning of the last century has been transformed into a beautiful Exhibition Centre. It's worth according to the exposure that develops.

  • Inaugurated in 1910 to House an ice rink, as part of a club that were wealthy people, then became a dance hall. In 1932 it was remodeled by architect Alejandro Bustillo and today functions as exhibition centre. Located in the Recoleta district. Its entrance is free. It is worth visiting it.

  • Good place for expositions, it needs to be repaired... but it's free!
  • Amazing museum, the different exhibitions are all incredible, and the architecture of the building is mesmerizing.
  • Awesome work. Beautiful place.

  • Very nice Exhibition Centre! I'm going every year to sample of Photojournalism that is excellent. I went just to see "Los Ángeles de Charly" seemed badly exposed. Very dirty walls, bad light and glass works that reflected the light and not the photographs can be seen.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
