Housed in a hulk of a building (originally a pumping station) on the busy traffic artery of Avenida del Libertador, the National Museum of Fine Arts is a vast treasury of Argentinian and Latin American art and painting from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as one of the most important in Latin America. In the dozens of rooms you'll find heavyweight Argentinian artists. Although the emphasis here is on Latin American art, you'll also find important collections of European art and a smattering of American and Asian art. From Tuesday to Friday, 12:30pm to 8:30pm Saturday & Sunday, 9:30am to 8:30pm
There’s no fee to enter this fine museum housing significant works of the European masters from pre-Renaissance days to the present and a vast collection of 19th- and 20th-century Argentine sculptures and paintings.
Rich with centuries-old paintings and sculptures, the MNBA is a national treasure worth checking out. Surrounded by a beautiful park and just streets away from the Floralis Generica (the big flower) and a strip of restaurants and bars on Av. Figueroa Alcorta, try visiting the museum and then heading…
With more than 12,000 pieces, it offers one of the most important art collections in the country. If you enjoy art, it is without a doubt a must-see.
El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, ubicado en la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, es una de las instituciones públicas de arte más importantes de Argentina. Alberga un patrimonio sumamente diverso, que incluye más de 12.000 piezas, entre pinturas, esculturas, dibujos, grabados, textiles y objetos.
One of the best art collections in Latin America with pieces by Picasso, Goya, El Greco, Rembrandt and many more.
“An impressive modern building, the MALBA contains works by Argentine greats and other Latin American masters. It regularly hosts seminars and has a small cinema for cult and art-house retrospectives.”
“If you think of cemeteries as depressingly dark, underground affairs, Buenos Aires’ Recoleta Cemetery will turn that on its head. Considered the second most beautifuls cementery in the world (after the Pere Lechaise in Paris), the site was declared the city’s first official public burial place in 1822. Aside from being the resting place of the deceased, it is completely unlike a normal cemetery. The place is full of elaborately carved scroll-work and stately pillars that only reach up to your shoulder because all the structures are weirdly mini; it’s more magical than macabre. The burial site of Argentina’s most famous figures, including Evita herself.”
“Specialized in design and decorative arts, it offers valuable collections of European and Oriental pieces from the 16th to the 20th centuries. It has permanent and temporary exhibitions, cultural activities and guided visits to discover everything about the artistic creations of the museum.”
“Main shopping center in the neighborhood. It offers a wide range of shops, even travel agencies to purchase plane tickets or bus tickets to local towns. The green subway line 'D' has its entrance right in front of the mall.”
