“Amazing museum for Latin American art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The building is magnificent (so is the cafe) but it's the modern Latin American art that's breathtaking. Some of the work is so haunting that the images will be forever in our minds.

the art was a little too modern for me. The videos they were showing were very interesting. Definitely go on a Wednesday when there is discounted price! if you are a student, bring your id!

Interesting but a small collection. I would not go if you have just few days for visiting Buenos Aires.

“Latin Modern Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

You don't find much modern art from Latin America in US museums, so the MALBA was a great experience. Well organized and a nice cafe as well if you get hungry.

“Nice way to spend an hour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

If you want to see some Latin American art and you have a short attention span this is the Museum for you. Great little collection and the price of admission isn't too steep either. You can scoot around it really quickly. The cafe is very expensive so don't plan on eating there.
