We visited the MALBA during our recent visit to Buenos Aires and loved the broad range of representative South American art. Highly recommended.

Our only issue was with the onsite restaurant. We had heard it was a good option for lunch. We had to find ad clear our own table and find our own menus. After about 10 minutes one of our party found a server and asked them to take our order. After another 15-20 minutes without getting service we walked out. Unfortunate since there are not too many other lunch options close by.

I wouldn't say Buenos Aires has a lot to offer in the art department but the fantastic permanent exhibition here is well worth a visit, I spent a highly enjoyable hour strolling around. the crazy bench alone makes it worth the trip!

Great architecture and an inspiring exhibition. You can even get good food in the cafe. Certainly worth a visit.

We loved MALBA. Amazing light and architecture. The art was wonderful and the size perfect...doesn't take more than an hour of your day. We hit it on the way to the Buenos Aires Zoo...also highly recommended!

The day we went was the most beautiful day of our entire stay in Buenos Aires and the last place I wanted to be was in a museum. But- WOW-this former palace was extraordinary and gave a picture of what upper class life was like in BA in the early 20th Century. One thing not to be missed is Croque Madame, the museum's cafe. The food was incredible and worth a trip itself.
