It does have a nice tree-shaded patio with a restaurant which is open in spite of the fact that the museum itself is closed. The "abierto" sign outside refers, I guess, to the café.

A nice museum in the middle of the Palermo Park, across from the Rose Gardens. Very agreeable walk. Nice cafe in a patio inside. The art value depends on the temporary exhibit going on at the time. These days (August 2016) the exhibit of the items for auction is very good.

Full of local changing art, this museum/ house was a perfect retreat from the already gorgeous parks of Palermo Soho. It is full of local designers who paint tremendously beautiful pictures, and sculpt thought provoking pieces. I really loved this museum.

The Museo Sivori is a gem among the many museums in Buens Aires. Situated across from El Rosedal, it is a quiet retreat to contemplate different Argentinian artists. The current exhibit on Gaby Herbstein, was the most thought provoking photography exhibit seen in a long time. The cost of entrance is $1 and there is virtually no else sharing your... More

The “Museo de Artes Plasticas” was founded in 1938 with the objective of promoting Argentinean art and allowing the public to explore and experience that art. Since then the museum accumulated a substantial collection of Argentinean art by acquisitions and donations; and today after more than 75 years its mission and strategy remain the same. In 1946, the museum was... More

This excellently located small museum dedicated to contemporary Argentinean art didn't deceive us. When we visited we could see the interesting and very original work of Gaby Herbstein, a good discovery. The interest of thecae probably varies in function of the quality of the temporary exhibition but in any case the building is nice and there is a small cafe... More

I guess for being free this museum wasn't bad. It had a caffeteria which was nice and a tiny book shop. The place wasn't clean and the bathrooms were disgusting. The walls needed painting. The art pieces weren't good.

We went there because they offered a free guide to show us the artist who was in the museum at the moment. It was interesting, as far as someone who doesn´t know much about art more than viewing some paints or the biography of great artists at the most. It was interesting, enough for both us to not spend more... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
