Great exhibit of impressionist, old masters, argentine artists. Better than MALBA in our humble opinion!

What a marvelous surprise this museum was ! We didn't expect such a collection, and certainly not the several outstanding masterpieces. The museum entrance is free.

I rate Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (no entry fee for the permanent collections) as one of the great museums of the world and a must see while in Buenos Aires, together with Malba (reviewed separately). I was particularly interested in Argentinian painters so if you only have an hour or two, head straight up to the second floor where... More

Came on a rainy day in BA, perfect place to escape the rain. The museum is big so have a plan or better yet just stick with artist from South America. The museum is located in La Recoleta neighborhood within about a 10 minute walk from the cemetery. Closed on Monday’s

We went there after the New Year's Day and was surprised to see it was closed; it was closed on Monday. The museum was not big judging by the look of the building. It was across the street from the famous metal flower; so we went to see the flower instead.

Both the collection itself and the presentation is remarkable. We visited on a warm sunny day, because that was the day most convenient. However, this would be a good choice should you experience a rainy day. My wife has a Fine Arts degree, so she helps me out, but I am happy seeing fine paintings and sculptures and deciding what...

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
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 also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
