It is worth visiting this very nice museum. The permanent exposition of mostly Latin American artists is quite impressive and the featured artists this month where Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince. Two extraordinary American artists. The Perón pictures exposition is also worth seeing.

This is the modern museum of Argentine art. We saw two excellent exhibits, plus their permanent collection. Two suggestions: eat at their restaurant and go on Wednesday for half price tickets. Students, with identification and seniors are free every day.
