This unexpected treasure at the end of Defensa and just beyond the Plaza Dorrego is indeed worth it - though it's likely not a good choice if you can only deal with representational, pre-20th Century art. If you embrace all kinds of art and want...More

This is a tiny gallery over 4 floors but a nice space nonetheless. As others have said the art is pretty random and we only liked one out of the 4 floors. But as it’s so cheap we were ok with that. Worth checking out...More

The temporary exhibitions on display are artsy, sure, but most definitely very bizarre. Since you have to pay to enter, I would recommend this museum only to those who are really into the confusing modern art.

I'm far from being an art critic but I can tell that the 4 floors of this museum are currently underutilized. The price of the ticket does not even include a brochure. The references to each piece of work are available in each floor written...More

It's basically just four floors with almost nothing to see there. For what you get even 60 pesos is too much!

The museum exhibits around one theme at a time. The architecture of the museum is quite interesting and it's calm and quiet which invites you to contemplate the art on display if that way inclined.

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. I walked to san Telmo and to this museum. Find a hotel downtown and walk everywhere in Buenos Aires. They re-staged La Menesunda by Marta Minujin. The exhibit caused a sensation in the 1960. It is also...More

Nice building... and that's about it. Four nice large floors, very empty but for a few paintings here and there (Geometrical shapes....). Maybe we hit the wrong temporary exhibition, maybe we hit the wrong museum? Obviously this should be to some visitors taste (go figure...),...More

If you are interested in contemporary art, this is definitely a place to go. In this new concrete and glass building there are 3 floors for you to visit. Watch out on their website what they exhibit actually.

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
