“A great little museum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

Malba museum is filled with great Latin American art. There are different exhibits all the time.
Also has a cute store where you can get gifts.
And a cafe/restaurant with outdoor space. A definite to include on your Buenos Aires tour.

“Nice building - nice gift shop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

There are some nice pieces on display here, but it is a small collection on display with a lot of second rate art. Still worth a visit if you have time. Bus 67 stops here.

“Nice collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

The Diego rivera piece and the Tarsila do Amaral Abipuru are by themselves enough to worth a visit, but I got to know and enjoy many other latin artists. And the shop has cute souvenirs.

“Gorgeous building is art in its own right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Loved the collection, but the building and its furnishings are worth the visit; really, really inspiring. When we visited, they were featuring a collection of videos by British artist Tracey Emin; not sure why she was being featured at MALBA, but I really, truly hated this feature. Sorry. Otherwise, I recommend MALBA as a must-see while in BA.
