“Excellent collection, beautiful building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had the MALBA on our list, but never made it a priority, until we were dying for something to do to escape the 43' heat. An excellent decision, the MALBA is full of well-curated shows, and a fantastic permanent collection. They also provided english translations of the curator's notes which was very nice, and much appreciated (and lacking in other museos in BA).

“Interesting Look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A few pieces will really interesting. Most interesting of all was the realization of how derivative New World art can be. The building is lovely.

“LOVED it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The building of the museum is glorious and the collection features the best latin american artists of the 20th century. I fell in love with Antonio Berni here. The cafe is excellent; a little pricey but worth it for the quality of food and wine list as well as the atmosphere and the service which are both excellent.

“Not to missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Amazing museum that is also a bargain. Currently the entrance fee is around 3 USD. The museum normally has 3 rotating exhibits in all different mediums. Allow yourself 2 hours, more if you plan on having lunch at the excellent indoor/outdoor cafe. Don't miss the gift store and book store as well. You can take pictures as well just make sure you don't use the flash. This is one place where you can go back to again and again and always see something new. It is one of the first stops whenever I have guests here visiting.
