“Wonderful Collection - MUST SEE!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Amalia has such a wonderful collection. Many of the Argentinian artists traveled to Europe to study and learn from the masters and their influence is unmistakeable. You'll see cubism, impressionism, surrealism, etc... but within an Argentinian subject/context. At first it felt a bit strange but then it seemed so natural. My guide was Alex and he was terrific! You'll also see Chagall, Warhol, Picasso, and others here. GREAT MUSEUM!

“Another excellent choice for the art in Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

A very interesting private collection (now open to the public) of one of the most rich women in Argentina (recently passed away). A very rich group of classic and modern art. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful museum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Happened across this wonderful museum in the Puerto Madero and was very happy to have visited it. It was very affordable, I think 35 pesos. The temporary exhibit focused on Argentinian artist Raúl Soldi and was wonderfully curated and presented. The rest of the collection is a great look at wonderful Argentinian artists that I had never encountered before as well as a few pieces from famous artists such as Turner and Brueghel. Definitely would recommend this beautiful building and the art inside!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Wonderfull architecture in Puerto Madero, very nice views. The art collection is eclectic, extremely diverse range of quality, but the cafe/restaurante is ok, nice food, unforgettable desserts.

“Was my favorite museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This was by far my boyfriend and mine's favorite museum in Buenos Aires. It is located in Puerto Madero on the north end, near the end of the Fourth Dike. The building in itself is beautiful, with almost complete views above and around you (appears to be almost entirely built of glass, at least while you are inside it is), which has great views (day or night) of the dikes and surrounding area! The fee was nominal, maybe $30 pesos or less, and I would say it was the best pesos spent while we were there. The museum houses the private art collection of a very important Argentine woman name Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, whom sadly just died this past February. She had quite the collection, as you slowly realize once you see there are 3 floors! She even has her own painting by Andy Warhol included in the exhibit, and some slightly odd and depressing work by Salvador Dali (isn't most of his work though?). She has an amazing piece called "Juliet and Her Nurse" in which she purchased back in 1980 for a then-record price at an auction. It was my favorite piece! But hey, don't trust me, go see it for yourself!
