Next to the famed Recoleta Cemetery (final resting place of Eva Perón) stands an arts center with permanent and touring exhibits that also features theatrical and musical performances. Its first floor houses the kid-interactive Museo Participativo de Ciencias, where youngsters can wander on their own.

We enjoyed this place tremendously after the public picnic in front of the stage on the large lawn outside the building. We found so much energy in the various exhibition rooms, so much innovation in design, so busy with so many young adults. We did...More

We dropped in not expecting much and had a great time. There was a show of large photos of actors, singers, artists and other notables, with quotes from them in chalk on the walls. Truly excellent to hear their pithy sayings. Then an installation of...More

The building dates from colonial days and has served as a monastery, hospital, old people's home and now one of the highlights in the Buenos Aires artistic menu. The place itself definitely deserves spending a while just looking at the surroundings from this scenic mound...More

Interesting building. Lots of exhibitions. The key thing is free. Also its close to the Recoleta cemetery. If you have time, they even have a laser dance show at the end of the alley.

This is a space to enjoy contemporary Argentinian art. It is in between a museum and a gallery. Good selection of young artist.

This building is prominently located in Recoleta, very close to the cemetery and all other places that matter. The outside is a delight; it is painted deep orange and white and looks enticing. Yet inside it has the appeal of an old hospital with its...More

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos

an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
