Located in the beautiful district of Puerto Madero, the private Fortabat Museum houses the fabulous modern and contemporary art collection of Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat in an impressive new and spacious gallery building. It is the best such collection of art in BA. Also visit the Croque Madame restaurant adjoining for an excellent lunch.

Located in the northern end of the hip Puerto Madero neighborhood, the museum makes a very pleasant experience, starting with a very nice exhibit spaces in a smartly designed building. The collection is basically chronologically organized Argentinean art, and it is small but fairly representative. It includes some truly outstanding Bernis.

Not only is the building sleekly impressive, but the permanent collection is absolutely worth a visit. From Dali to Turner, to Warhol. Señora Fortbat had a magnificent eye for art and even more money plus contacts to acquire it. Temporary Marcia Schvartz exhibit on top floor -give it a miss.

I feel like if I were a major art enthusiast, I would have liked this more. This museum is one woman's collection of art and, while many of the pieces were interesting/beautiful, it was sort of three floors of the same thing. I'd say 99% of the place was paintings, and then you had a few tiny sculptures and one... More

From the first ebullient Andy Warhol of Amalia Lacroze to the rest of the extensive and most interesting private collection this place is a knockout. First class space to begin with, beautifully lit. Put this firmly on your BA art-circuit

This art collection is a must if you are interested in Argentinian art. I visited the permanent collection which gave a tastefully curated cross section of works by Argentinian artists from the 18-hundreds to present times.

Impresive building and location. The private colection includes one floor dedicated to the most important Argentine painters. Another floor to international artists including Turner and Petoruti amongs other. Worth visiting without a doubt!

The collection being a private one that was started around the 60's just as from pure pleasure and because she liked the specific art piece is incredible .... To have left such an art collection for all to enjoy....most of the art is Argentinian with some excellent international pieces...I didn't know anything about Argentinian art and took the guided tour...

The main important thing here is to point out that this is not an art museum, but a private collection... therefore it is quite eclectic and personal, yet very interesting. Highly recommendable

The collection here is okay - nothing special - the building in many ways, is the star attraction. If you're looking for an excuse to get to Puerto Maduro, this will get you there and then you can wander the wetlands afterwards.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
