3.6
#1 of 7 in Museums in Mar del Plata
MAR Museo de Arte Contemporaneo features a series of modern art exhibits and interactive displays.

  • The architecture of the building, all in concrete and glass draws the attention of passers-by. But it's the enormous sculpture of a sea lion, made with packages of alfajor, the big draw. Inside, temporary exhibitions. Free entry.

  • Modern building, beautiful architecture. The penalty is that it has no collection, there are times that there is no nothing to do in the. Visit may be just 10/15 minutes to tour the building.
