“Beautiful museum at an easy to get to location”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The best thing about finding this museum was the walk that I took to find it. The museum is on a long, wide street and quite pleasant. I took many pictures on my way here. The museum itself is in an interesting building.

“Excellent collection”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Make sure that you know when this little museum is open. We showed up at noon and it did not open until 2 pm. Also if you are looking for a meal, there is a nice little place directly across from the museum. Make a reservation, eat, and then go to the museum.

“Depends on if you like modern art”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

There are definitely some good pieces of art here, and it does give you a good selection of Latin American art, but there are better more complete collections in the U.S. and Europe

It's one of the old mansions of the Alvear family. Easy to appreciate with English and Spanish descriptions.

“Excellent Art collection”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Free visit. Excellent display of art and old history by guide. About one and a half hour tour was a good part of our visit to BA
