|About these ratings|
With its extensive collection of avant-garde 19th- and 20th-century works, the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA) is an essential stopover for art lovers. The museum features the private collection of Eduardo Costanini, a real estate tycoon with an eye for iconic art. Highlights include the works of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Antonio Berni. In addition to its temporary exhibits, the museum also hosts film and lecture series throughout the year.
Many visitors are just as impressed with the museum's contemporary design as they are with its art. One TripAdvisor user comments, "The range of modern art, both Latin American and North American, is phenomenal and the space and book store are terrific."
The museum welcomes visitors every day except Tuesdays from noon to 8 p.m. Regular admission costs 60 pesos (about $7 USD). On Wednesdays, the MALBA stays open an extra hour and reduces ticket prices. Private guided tours are available in English or Spanish on weekdays, until 6:30 p.m. You'll find the MALBA on Avenue Figueroa Alcorta in the trendy Palermo neighborhood, accessible via the 67, 102, 124, and 130 buses.
