I am not an art expert, so I cannot offer an opinion about the quality or breadth of the museum's collection. However, if you speak English, the tour given by Germán on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (more information on the Museum's website) is wonderful. The...More

This is a nice museum but if you will see more European art in this museum rather than Argentinian art. It is free so if you have time or are passing by, you can drop by. Also, tours in English are not always available and...More

I did enjoy this one. I was impressed by the number of works by the classical masters. I have never seen that much security in any building before. They warn you to be careful of pick-pockets, but we did not experience or see any threats....More

Loved exploring this museum. The collection is vast and has a great mix of artists. The air conditioned building is also a nice reprieve from the heat.

Bellas Artes is worth more than one visit for both its permanent paintings and sculptures collection and for the temporary exhibitions. I have recently visited the Xul Solar exhibit which was very, very good !! and it is on until June 18.

We spent two hours going around the ground floor of the museum, and we were amazed by the breadth of the collection. Make sure to visit the rooms with the Impressionists paintings.

I have visited 3 times in the last 4 weeks. It has a world class collection,and is free! My only gripe is the lack of English materials to go in greater depth. They have English language tours Tuesday,Wednesday and Fridays at 1:00pm.

This museum was very nice and has a lot of good artwork and history inside! It is a pretty big museum and was very clean.

Gorgeous art from a variety of time periods. Two floors with an easy-to-read map guiding visitors from room to room. Statuary as well as paintings. Mostly European, so go elsewhere for strictly Argentinian art.

A small museum that's not overwhelming. Collections include a great sampling of classics/ famous artists (Rembrandt, Picasso, Pollack, Rothko, etc) plus an extensive collection of Argentine artists. Just the right size - and its FREE!

Characterized by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

Not sure but it's a great area near Recoleta so if it's not there will be nearby cafes to hang out in and the market might be in place as New Year's Day is on the weekend.
This museum is closed for redecoration until 16 February 2015. Can trip advisor be advised please, as we had a wasted trip.
