Museo Nacional was a small museum compared to many, but with unforgettable pieces of art. A number of rooms have beautiful paintings from the likes of Dega, Monet, Raphael. Other rooms showing the history of Argentina, which are beautifully depicted. Over-all I really enjoyed this museum and if the opportunity arrises will visit again.

Fantastic selection of art, particularly impressionist and post-impressionist artists. It's in a great location surrounded by gardens, so a great way to spend a sunny afternoon. The collection is broad with a stunning array of artists from Rembrandt, Renoir, Degas, Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Picasso.

This was really a lovely museum. Its an easy way to spend an afternoon or a rainy day. I spent 2 and a half hours here wandering from room to room. I went on a friday afternoon, and there were only a handful of other people there. It is free entrance. There are not a lot of english explanations, but... More

As an art lover I couldn't miss this museum, it doesn't open early, but entrance is free, staff are very polite, not as big as some other museums but very good collection.

I did love the museum!!! I could spent a hole day over there appreciating the arts. The entrance was free, and there are lots and lots of magnificent arts also from famous artists as Monet, Van Gogh, Rodin and a lot of other ones. Highly recommended to not loose it when visiting BA!

I was expecting more. But maybe wasn't just my type of art. I missed the diversity in the paintings. But I'm not an art-lover or specialist. Is just by far not as interesting as my favorite, bottero-museum in Bogota.

We visited the museum on a Saturday...it was free and not crowded. The traveling display was a very good collection of French Impressionist paintings including all the big names, Monet, Manet, Degas. Other works included South American artists and some Spanish painters including a room full of Goya works. My husband and I are not huge art museum-goers and usually... More

This was a much better gallery than we expected. It was well laid out over two floors with lots of varied spaces. The works displayed were mostly 19th and 20th century ranging from classic European art and sculpture right up to modern Argentinian works. Everything was displayed clearly and the room hangings were put together extremely well. Lots of unfamiliar... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
