It houses one of the largest and most valuable collections of Latin American modern and contemporary art in the whole world: the Eduardo Costantini's Collection. This businessman and philantropist, while establishing the MALBA Museum, shares his fantastic collection with us! Outstanding paintings from... More

The collection was really amazing, and as teachers we got in free. I've never seen so much quality Latin American art in one place, and it has a wide range. We had fun taking pictures with the pop art.

MALBA is a fantastic museum of modern art. What make MALBA stand out - besides the great space and fine collection of Latin American work -- is the signage (most in Spanish). I learned a great deal about different Modern Art styles and the artists, in a concise way. This museum made me want to learn more, something that the... More

3 levels of art. Found more european art here than in all of the art museums in this city which is funny since it has 'latin american art' in it's name! Degas, Monet, Van Gogh, etc.

This museum is nice! I went because it said it had work from Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Botero, but though they are there and are stunning, there are much other modern and contemporary works by other Latin-American artists which are great. I personally enjoy the modern art and I thought the permanent collection was good. It is not too... More

Some important painting from Latin American artists. However, I was expecting the art collection to be much bigger, as well as the building.

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
