The area
Address
Neighborhood: Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

I loved this museum. It had some very interesting g art work that really made you think. Take the time to read the writing on the walls. They explain one art work and once you understand where the artist came from you see the piece from a whole new world. The museum had a section on Frida Kahlo which details about about her life. It’s a great place if you need something quick but also indoors to get away from the heat or the cold.

We saw the Arte Latinoamericano 1900-1970 exhibit. Colecion Malta. Very much enjoyed it. My husband and our two friends enjoyed the earlier pieces (chronological) of art more, whereas I enjoyed the art most from the middle to the end (1970). The later art was very contemporary and I love contemporary.

Some of the artists I enjoyed the most were Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueoros, Antonio Berni, Claudio Tazzi, Romulo Maccio, Jorge de la Vega, Rogelio Polesello, Augusta Luis de Campos, Gregorio Vardanega, Yente, Roberto Matta, and Frida Khali (one piece). Many of these names were new to me, so I took note so I can study their works further on my own.

The museum was busy, but pleasantly busy. Not so many people as to feel crowded, and most people were very respectful of your space when viewing a piece you wanted to spend more time with.

I was very excited by this collection. I only ever dreamed of seeing an original Frida Kahlo and this gallery displays one as well as a Rivera. Immerse yourself in the art of Latin America. Check out the pool! (Installation)
Beautiful modern building. low entry fee. Nice cafe.

Excellent museum that combines culture and fun as some of the exhibits can be touched or play with. Just be careful as it only opens at noon. The Neto exhibit is really interesting and the curators will let you play with the art

This was such a joy to visit. I loved the permanent collection. There was a special collection that featured mid-century household items. Many of the items were from the 80s, and before fun to see things I would have played with in a museum. I also loved seeing how media from the Falkland War was presented here.

Although the second floor was closed for some reason while we were there, this is still a very good art museum. Nice works displayed, with Spanish and English descriptions. Typical gift shop and attached snack bar/ restaurant which was terribly slow, but had decent food and made great coffee. Open on Mondays when other places might be closed. If you like art museums worth a look.

Although the present exhibit on the third floor is interesting, I wouldn't rate it a must to see. The second floor is wonderful, showing a vast range of Argentinian artists. Overall, the museum is a little gem.

Although the museum is very small, the art was interesting. Especially enjoyed seeing the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera pieces. The food in the restaurant was good but the service was extremely slow. The wait to buy tickets at the entrance to the museum was even slower.
