The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes ("National Museum of Fine Arts") is an Argentine art museum in Buenos Aires, located in the Recoleta section of the city. The Museum inaugurated a branch in Neuquén in 2004. The museum hosts works by Goya, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Rodin, Manet and Chagall among other artists.
Argentine painter and art critic Eduardo Schiaffino, was the first director of the museum, which opened on 25 December 1895, in a building on Florida Street that today houses the Galerías Pacífico shopping mall. In 1909, the museum moved to a building in Plaza San Martín, originally erected in Paris as the Argentine Pavilion for the 1889 Paris exhibition, and later dismantled and brought to Buenos Aires. In its new home, the museum became part of the International Centenary Exhibition held in Buenos Aires in 1910. Following the demolition of the pavilion in 1932, as part of the remodeling of Plaza San Martín, the museum was transferred to its present location in 194 3, a building originally constructed in 1870 as a drainage pumping station and adapted to its current use by architect Alejandro Bustillo.

Free public museum doing its best to bring international art master's work to everyone. Their effort should be recognized even though some small things could still be improved. In my opinion, they should really work improving the light inside because it's a little too dark.

One of the best jewels of Buenos Aires, very intereseting collection of paints and sculptures... and the best news is it is FREE. YES you don't pay a dime to get in whether you are an Argentine citizen or tourist... If you love Art you must visit this place when you are in BA.

Large museum with a lot of paintings of different styles. Well worth a visit. Recommended over the MALBA, as there is more diversity and a larger collection. Very surprised this museum is free.

Great building. Worth a look if your in the area but its a library so unless your there to read a book you wont be there for long.

Ian still impressed with the art collection of many different artists. Miro is love or not. You need to be in Barcelona to appreciate.

I appreciate a free museum. Most of the work was geared for people with a better understanding of art. I'm not sure the average person would get a lot out of it.

Very interesting art museum. Got to see ancient to contemporary art works. Even saw a one by rousseau.

Lovely little museum spread over 2 levels housing many of the well in known artists and sculptors. This place flows well and covers various types of traditional and modern art pieces on both floors. Many of the big names, Picasso, Renoir, Monet, Manet, Degas and more have their work on display here, also famous sculptors like Rodin too.

Very interesting architecture design to bring the "Divine Comedy". They've preserved the 1920's. We took a bilingual tour and it was excellent except the three guide did not share the questions asked in Spanish.

One of the most important fine arts museums in Latin America, recently modernised and refurbished. Almost always I find interesting exhibitions in this museum. Free entrance!

The building is not to be confused with the ornate stone building across the street. Even for amateur art admirers, this museum has a little something for everyone. Chose your exhibits carefully, unless you commit for a couple of hours to see everything.

Fantastic! The museum with the highest number of famous art from Buenos Aires, should be a obligatory to be here an half of a day to dedicate time to appreciate every room from this museum and do not have got time pressure to go out. Another good point, is the guided visit. Have got a lot of guides to provide a guided visit for small groups.

Sublime collections composed of works of art authored by renowned artists from Argentina and Europe. At the time of my visit the museum lacked any guided tours and some of the collections were composed of furniture and personal effects of a wealthy Argentinian family of the 19th century. These collection, while very beautiful, lacked the impact and majesty of the Rodin sculptures and the Goya paintings. Also a point in its favor is that it has no entrance fee.
