Visited to see the Picasso drawing exhibition which is on until February 2017, but also went to the concurrent Berni exhibition. Modern museum but take a wrap as the air conditioning was arctic! The Picasso exhibition is laid out chronologically so one gets a feel for his evolution as an artist, but it is a little like seeing a master... More

Entree fee is cheap and exhibitions, like the reviews here, change all the time. For some reason only part of the museum was in use. The least interesting part was, for me, the Picasso exhibition. There was some interesting work by argentinian artists though. If you have a full program skip this one. If not, take a chance and you... More

By happenstance we ended up at this friendly and accommodating modern art gallery with a wonderful Picasso sketch show, This is Picasso's first visit to Argentina accompanied by a super exhibition of Argentina's Antonio Berni. Loved the place. Please look at the photos for a touch of things to come. 3 stars above the unaccommodating MALBA. No knapsack prejudice to... More

Entrance to the museum is only 20 pesos. However there are a limited number of works of art on display and one entire floor was being renovated when we were there. We were literally in and out in about 30 mins. If you are passing then I would suggest visiting but do not make a special trip just for this... More

A great collection of abstraction on Level 2 from Argentina. Really quite good. The rest of the levels have various displays of print-making and other installations. Great stuff. We even participated in an artwork, where I left my demons in the photocopier. Get down here and check it out.

If you like modern art, this accessible museum will feed your need. Not all of the art is from Latin America, but the art is varied and nicely displayed. The space is beautiful. The current special exhibit is Vigo's works, which is a great collection with clear signage. We heard that admission is free on Tuesdays and were happy to... More

Four floors of displays showing Argentina modern art (from XX and XXI centuries). 20 $AR (pesos, or 1.50 dollars) each, but it's free on Tuesdays.

A must for modern art lovers. MAMBA is a bit lesser known in the city despite turning 60 years old this year, and being located in San Telmo. Come here for great exhibits and exposure to artists you haven't heard of, but will continue to follow for years to come. The architecture is also stunning. Yes, you can walk on... More

I went to Museo de Arte Moderno and this is a nice place to spend some time. But I found it big for the few amount of pieces in there. When I was there the elevators wasn't working and everybody had to cover all the 4 floors by stairs.

I really, really enjoyed my visits today. The La Menesunda According to Marta Minujin was exciting and mind blowing, and wonderful and very before its time. Museums collection of modern art featuring many South American and some European artists. The works are amazing and inspiring. The best Art Gallery in BA. I will be revisiting the museum again before I... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
