On a date here with my ex-fiance, someone randomly took our picture while we looked at art. That was my favorite moment. There are a lot of great sculptures and paintings. The museum is just so big that we couldn't get through it all before wanting to go home and take a nap.
Free admission, beautiful collection of argentine art and also european
The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Buenos Aires’ National Museum of Fine Arts) houses, amongst others, a permanent collection of Argentine Art, dating from the late 19th century to the present day. The collection is particularly interesting because it covers a broad range of artistic styles, touching on impressionism, romanticism, cubism, minimalism, surrealism and post-impressionism, to name a few. There are works painted in watercolour, oils and acrylic, prints, drawings in ink and photographs which document significant moments of Argentine History. It’s one of the most interesting collections to discover on a visit to Argentina.
This building was once Buenos Aires water-pumping station converted into a fantastic museum. There are over 12 thousand artistic works, but only 700 can be displayed at a time. Opened in 1932, this is one of the finest art museums in all of Latin America. I would strongly recommend that you pay them a visit while in Buenos Aires.
The national fine arts museu is pretty good.. and free! There's been pieces that rotated with the MoMa and caught me at WOW.
Excellent art gallery!
Beautiful collection of classical pieces.
