“not much to see”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Interesting but a small collection. I would not go if you have just few days for visiting Buenos Aires.

“Latin Modern Art”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

You don't find much modern art from Latin America in US museums, so the MALBA was a great experience. Well organized and a nice cafe as well if you get hungry.

“Nice way to spend an hour.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

If you want to see some Latin American art and you have a short attention span this is the Museum for you. Great little collection and the price of admission isn't too steep either. You can scoot around it really quickly. The cafe is very expensive so don't plan on eating there.

“A great little museum.”
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”
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.
