Great variety of European and South American works. Sculpture collection is quite nice as well. Only drawback: Very hot in winter (TIP: leave your heavy coat at home).

Great collection of paintings but the curation is poor. The Argentine room is an eyesore - please avoid this one if you want to escape a headache.

The place was under construction so they didn't have a lot of its content open to the public. Still, it was a short but nice visit.

The museum has many wonderful paintings painted by Degas, Monet, Sisley, and even one Van Gogh. All art periods are covered, including the early 14th century. There are also several paintings painted by Argentinean artists.

This museum highlights European are more than their own (which is very well exhibited at the Coleccion de Arte Amalia de Fortabat in Pureto Madero). Their European collection is not spectacular, and there is not a comprehensive representation of their own art.

I did not expected, by any chance to attend such a great collection, with Nordic artist, some argentinian, and some impresionist. Exhibition is organized, ambiance is great, is missing the communication from the curator to the public, also missing reading material, brochures, etc. Overall great exhibition, specially for the work donated by the Hirsh family.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood 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 centered 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.
