The museum has an interesting collection. It is not a huge museum but well laid out. We were lucky to catch the Turner exhibit which was excellent. $2.50 entrance fee for foreigners included the ticket to the special exhibit.

It is a small museum but they have an interesting collection. We were lucky to catch the Turner exhibit which is visiting from the Tate. A lovely museum and perfect for a rainy day. $2.50 admission for foreigners included access to the special exhibit.

This lovely museum has a classic design and offers lots of good space to show works of art. We went here for a special touring show. There are also some notable works in their permanent collection.

Another great little museum in the middle of the city. With lots of permanent exhibitions and temporary ones. You can see the entire place is less than 3 hours. Very nice place to visit.

A very busy art gallery with a large collection of mainly traditional art. Free admission even to the visiting special exhibition - watercolours of Turner from UK on the day we visited. Well worth a visit and a couple of hours well spent

Definitely worth a visit when in Buenos Aires, but incomparable with the European and North American museums. It does have several Argentinian works and also paintings from well known international painters incl van Gogh, Rembrandt, Devas, Rodin and more. However, for a large and impressive...More

Some great paintings and a number by artists I've never seen before. Not all great but certainly worth the visit and an hour or two to view. Not much English language information but there is WiFi and the layout is good. While we were there...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
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

Not sure but it's a great area near Recoleta so if it's not there will be nearby cafes to hang out in and the market might be in place as New Year's Day is on the weekend.
