Excellent museum, and I'm always impressed by the quality of the exhibitions and accompanying texts. Cindy Sherman/Richard Price show is compact but very good... Sara Facio's photographic study of Perón between '72 and '74 is incredible.
An absolutely must for a visit when in Buenos Aires! I have been here twice in the past three years and the permanent collection is outstanding and visiting artist has been fantastic. A very good museum on par with large city modern art museums.
Nice, interesting and well organized. If you are into modern art, still worth going. Although, not a 5 start for sure. Without explanation if the pieces of art and the authors, most of the modern art is difficult to be understood and interpreted. If you go on your own without a guided tour, if they offer one, you can only read the title of the opera and name of the artist. The museum itself is short, as I said very interesting. It is a mix of different periods and is organized by themes. The temporary exposition at the moment, July 2018, is good. Small but interesting.
The only exhibit worthwhile was the photographs during the Peronismo. The main exhibit was not. I wish I had gone to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes down the road.
Very small collection, disappointing. The one plus is I came half an hour before closing and they offer the last half hour free of charge. I guess it's informative if you know nothing about Artes Latinos, but if you have even a passing knowledge of contemporary Latino art, this place brings no new revelations.
Excellent museum, has a large collection of works of art relating to Latin American culture, you can take a guided tour, the guides treat you very well, I recommend it is fun.
Excellent museum. A good visit to do in Buenos Aires and have got always clever and selected expositions. Take care with the time that they open (usually 12.00 hs) and have got a good restaurant.
Great museum. Very good size - not at all overwhelming. Good prices. Gorgeous building.
The museum collection has grown considerably since it opened in 2001. The curator has also decided to organise the collection thematically, with an interesting post development perspective. Si you have rooms focused on work, the beginning, women and gender, rural realities, and so on. This, in itself, is interesting. In the second floor they have temporary exhibitions. There's also a cinema in the ground floor. Wednesday at half price. Cafeteria is superb with specialty coffee and great cakes. Not cheap.
It is quite a small museum but really nice. The entrance is free which is very convenient if you are travelling on a budget. I wouldn’t say it is a must-see for buenos aires tourists.
Beautiful museum with nice restaurant inside. Check the events schedule in the website, they organize seminars and guided tours (paid and free). Become a member is recommended if you enjoy the style, exhibitions and want to support the museum.
Nice art museum but pricey, the other Fine Art Museum is much better bet and FREE in BA.
Very nice and modern private museum with great colection and expos. Just the guides for some exibitions are to load and their screaming disturbs the enjoyment of others 😉
Great Latin American Arts exhibition. Mix in betwen contemporary and more traditional arts. Wednesday is half price, worth visiting.
Great cultural site, at the same level as many world-class museums. Modern, dynamic, state-of-the-art. Up to international standards and enriched by the work of highly-qualified curators. Regular international exhibitions offer visitors variety, quality and first-class experiences. Unmissable if in BA.
Quite disappointed we paid full price for only one of the three floors of the museum, the other floors were closed including the ‘Surrealistic floor’. We were happy we visited on a Wednesday, when the entrance is cheaper, but do recommend guest services to tell you only one floor is opened. When asked, guest services told us there’s a poster hanging outside stating the ‘Surrealistic exhibition was from then to then’ and we just missed it, but that is was stated and we should’ve read it. When we told her the poster is in Spanish, she shrugged. And don’t give us that ‘learn the language of the country you’re travelling to’, because we don’t ask tourists to talk Dutch in the Netherlands or Finnish in Finland and Swedish in Sweden either. A sign in English could’ve sufficed for a museum that attracts a lot of tourists.
