Go on a Wednesday--it's cheaper for everyone and students get in free. They accepted US university ID's without issues. The collection was small but had many well known pieces that we enjoyed seeing in person.

The MALBA is fantastic. It made our day, and wished we could return. If you only go to one museum of art in Buenos Aires, go here.
