“Calling modern art fans...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The museum is 3 stories @ 16 pesos person. If you are a modern art fan it is a bargain to see a couple of well known South American artists like Frida Kahlo but then quite a few unknown artists. You should consider the day's activities as the art work is very moving so you might walk out with a different mood then when you entered. Definitely not a child's place.

“Stunning Oscar Munoz exhibition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

MALBA's focus seems to be on rotating exhibitions rather than the permanent collection, and they do bring in the big guns. When I visited, there was an absolutely fabulous Oscar Munoz exhibition and another by Tracey Emin. If you are planning to visit, I suggest looking at their website beforehand to see what's on.

“A Must See for Art Lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We visited the MALBA during our recent visit to Buenos Aires and loved the broad range of representative South American art. Highly recommended.

Our only issue was with the onsite restaurant. We had heard it was a good option for lunch. We had to find ad clear our own table and find our own menus. After about 10 minutes one of our party found a server and asked them to take our order. After another 15-20 minutes without getting service we walked out. Unfortunate since there are not too many other lunch options close by.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I wouldn't say Buenos Aires has a lot to offer in the art department but the fantastic permanent exhibition here is well worth a visit, I spent a highly enjoyable hour strolling around. the crazy bench alone makes it worth the trip!

Great architecture and an inspiring exhibition. You can even get good food in the cafe. Certainly worth a visit.
