Nice selection of fine European and argentine art, but the humidity in the building must have been close to 80% and Temps in the 80f range. I don't know how they plan to maintain these 400 year old paintings but don't let that detract you from what is otherwise a very nice museum with free admission.

This gallery is definitely worth a few hours. It could be good to do on a rainy day. Never really crowded and overall a pleasant experience.

This is a classic museum with a wonderful collection. Spend an afternoon wandering the colorful galleries to look at the classics including Gauguin and Goya, then head to the modern wing for a special photography exhibition. I especially loved the way the museum displayed the collection is richly colored rooms.

I really loved the variety of works on display, from Latin American artists to French Impressionists. They have a lovely collection which is worth spending an hour or two visiting. I do wish though that they would light the paintings better. You have to view them from the side because of the glare.

Nice section of Buenos Aires. I think it was free. They had some nice paintings and sculptures. Not the Louvre (Thank goodness) but a fun 2 hours - casual and uncrowded.

If you enjoy works of art, and are not expecting the creme de la creme of world art, this free to enter museum has a very interesting and enjoyable collection of European and South American art. I wouldn't have missed it.

Although the museum is free, I don't think it is worth the time. Most of the pieces in the museum are European and many are from obscure artists. There are only a couple of rooms with art from Argentina and the rest of Latin America.

Admission is free, and staff are helpful. Very good collections of impressionist art and artists from South America. Definitely worth a visit.
