Top ways to experience Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires
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.

Malba or Moma?
Feb 2020 • Couples
When I Made My first visit to the Malba...maybe 1995 More or less, I had the perception that It was a Moma copy... Today, I'm sure about It...But, Who cares? Buenos Aires needed this kind of modern museum. Enjoy it.

Some nice art
Jan 2020
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.

Astonishing and eye opening. Expect the unexpected!
Oct 2019
I can only give 4 stars as the second floor was closed during my visit. If it is half as good as the rest of the place, five stars easily!
So the collection was laid out chronologically, starting about 1918, and you can move through 100 years of genres, schools, styles, and techniques. Some attention is paid to the political turmoil of Latin America, but it never seemed like I was being preached to. And every wing of the building held more surprises.
I imagine your enjoyment of the Malba will depend on the exhibitions and which parts of the permanent collection are displayed.
The cafe seemed kind of upscale- definitely beyond my humble budget.

Interesting museum.
Feb 2020
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.

Malta Collection (1900-1970)
Feb 2020 • Couples
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.

Open on Mondays
Feb 2020 • Couples
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.
