In a part of town that maybe one wouldn't pay a visit to, but the modern building is worth a view and the art and photography collection are notable. You've got your Rodins, Miros, and she had Andy Warhol do a painting/Polaroid of her. The Latin American art collection seems varied.

This museum takes you to the docks and a very interesting area so it makes for a wonderful morning adventure. The collection is housed in a light and airy space and the collection is very interesting and covers a variety of genres. The special exhibit going on at the moment (till May 3) is pretty interesting and weird!!!!

This was my favorite museum in a city of Museums. Beautiful building filled with an eclectic collection spanning ancient through modern art and including film and performance art. I've been to many of the worlds best museums and really enjoyed the 'Faces of Eve' displays here. Fascinating!

I would like to invite you today to a unique museum and art collection, that of Amalia Lacroze Fortabat. But first a few words about Mrs. Fortabat and about the barrio of Puerto Madero, where the museum housing the art collection is. María Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat was born in 1921 in Buenos Aires to prominent Argentine and Uruguayan families... More

Here is a taste of what you can expect to see.The Family Gallery: featuring portraits of the Fortabat family.Landscapes, the City and Tradition: consisting mostly of 19th century Argentine landscape, naturalist...

the building at the far end of Puerto Madero is worth a visit. If possible take part in the guided tour in the afternoon as the guide gives some interesting explanations on the argentinian art world and how they were influenced by the European schools

Going to Puerto Madero, do not miss this Museum projected by the Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly to receive the art collection from Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat. Take your time and sit in front of the Venice painting from William Turner! This time as a temporary exhibition the work of Nicola Costantino about Eva Perón.

This is a wild museum - a blast to walk through and take in. It just keeps jolting you as you move from place to place. The motion picture of Evita moving from room to room, waving to the audience that disappears. The photo of Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat right next to the Andy Warhol silk screen. (And Andy gets...

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
