A nice collection of 19th century art complete with a few works from European masters and some Argentine artists influenced by them. The best collection of Argentine art is upstairs in the modern section. The special exhibits were interesting as well. it is also free.

We had a real surprise when we went in on a rainy afternoon. We saw works by Monet, Renoir, Picasso, van Gough, da Vinci and Raphael - as well as a huge collection of art by Argentineans and others. Entry is free. Must do!

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

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.
