  • The Museum is located in Nueva Córdoba against other museums (the palaces Ferreyra and Dionisio) the building is neoclassical and currently it was extended with an area designed with a modern style architecture. The interior is spacious and bright; It has nine rooms where contemporary art from national and international artists are exhibited: paintings, sculptures, photographs. When we visit it we could see interesting examples of Martin Di Girolamo, Agustina Triquell, Rafael Sucari and Sergio Vizcarra. Museum has one shop where you can purchase books of art, catalogues, etc. also a bar. The entry has a value of $15. Also you can buy an entry of $20 that allows access to other interesting museums (Museum of fine arts avoids Palacio Ferreyra) and Museo Provincial Palace Dionisi

  • Nice museum. 2 stories: 1 dedicated to Argentine artists. Not too big to be overwhelming. The collections on display often change. Entrance is free. There can be long lineups to enter on the weekend - try to come during the week.
  • Biggest art museum available in the city. The architecture of the museum itself is really interesting compared to the other options, the entry fee is really cheap
  • The best contemporary art museum in town.
  • fantastic and good
  • Nice modern art
