The museum exhibits around one theme at a time. The architecture of the museum is quite interesting and it's calm and quiet which invites you to contemplate the art on display if that way inclined.

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. I walked to san Telmo and to this museum. Find a hotel downtown and walk everywhere in Buenos Aires. They re-staged La Menesunda by Marta Minujin. The exhibit caused a sensation in the 1960. It is also...More

Nice building... and that's about it. Four nice large floors, very empty but for a few paintings here and there (Geometrical shapes....). Maybe we hit the wrong temporary exhibition, maybe we hit the wrong museum? Obviously this should be to some visitors taste (go figure...),...More

If you are interested in contemporary art, this is definitely a place to go. In this new concrete and glass building there are 3 floors for you to visit. Watch out on their website what they exhibit actually.

We visited during the cromofobia exhibition in Nov 2014, I don't think that helped. The exhibition space itself is formed in grey concrete with low ceilings and dim lighting. added to this very neutral palette was a scattering of B&W pieces of very modest interest....More

This unexpected treasure at the end of Defensa and just beyond the Plaza Dorrego is indeed worth it - though it's likely not a good choice if you can only deal with representational, pre-20th Century art. If you embrace all kinds of art and want...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
