A small but high quality private collection. It is also in a beautiful new building in the Puerto Madero area. Worth a visit. And can also walk around the area and dine as well.

ALF's collection is displayed in a modern environment in Puerto Madero, the new district of the city. Its art pieces, paintings etc.are certainly worth seeing.

This wonderful museum has a permanent collection on 2 floors and 2 floors for changing shows. The permanent collection is OK but the shows up when we were there were really a wonderful selection of contemporary art. Very inexpensive to get in and well worth it. And a great view of the water from the top floor.

This museum merits a visit when you are in Puerto Madero in combination with strolling, eating and shopping in the area, but I would not recommend it as a destination in and of itself. The collection is varied and eclectic. In terms of western European Art, there is a Turner, Chagall, and Breugel to spot along with an Andy Warhol... More

This is a comparatively small museum but fits in nicely to any tour of the Port Maero area, with its shops an restaurants... A nice appetizer to be enjoyed before MALBA or the Museum of Fine Arts.

The building much of which is underground is a complete success. The collection,eclectic in the best sense, shows the personality of its colorful owner. We particularly liked the Argentinian 19th and 20th century works. The Turner is early and not that interesting. The Brueghel is first rate.

Very complete, the guided tour is excellent and located near Puerto Madero. Very worth to visit! Students and seniors get a good discount.

Another museum in Buenos Aires that does not allow for pictures. The building is very interesting. Unfortunately, only the main collection was opened and even large, this collection was a let down after visiting Malba. There are not enough signs describing the importance of the paintings or how they were acquired.On the paintings: a couple of arlequins by Petrorutti, a... More

One of the few worthwhile things to check out in Puerto Madero, this museum is nonetheless a pretty haphazard collection, somewhat brashly displayed. You're bound to find at least a few paintings you like (and I'm very fond of a Roman mosaic on the top floor), but you also might feel a bit oppressed by the whims of a collector... More

This is this lady's legacy to Argentina. It's a fabulous building designed by a prominent architect, with huge exhibition spaces and high-tech design all over the place. (look at the roof!) Inside there's a fabulous review of Argentine art with extraordinary paintings by Alonso and Berni. The highlits are the Chagal, the Brueguel and the Turner,,,but don't miss her portrait... More
