Inaugurated on Christmas Day in 1896 and located in the heart of the gardens of Recoleta, this superb museum displays around 11,000 works, not all of which are on display at the same time. It is very large, admirably well-lit and highlighted, with explanations at the entrance to each room putting into perspective and relating the works on display by artistic trend. In 2015, Cristina Kirchner inaugurated 16 new rooms, which will allow for the exhibition of almost 300 additional works by 20th century Argentine painters.

The ground floor offers a panorama of Western art, from the Middle Ages to the present day (collection of 19th century French works). The oldest work is a 12th century Virgin and Child. Paintings by Picasso, Monet, De Chirico, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir, Degas, Klee, Léger, Goya, El Greco, Rubens or Tiepolo (among others).

On the first floor, Argentinean art is in the spotlight, with a wide range of artists such as Morel, García del Molino, the masters of the 19th century (Pueyrredón, de la Cárcova, Sívori...), and the most important artists of the 20th century (Pueyrredón, de la Cárcova, Sívori...).) or those of the 20th century: Fader (post-impressionist painter of rural life in the 1910-1920s), Xul Solar (prolix surrealist), Pettoruti (genius of Argentine cubism), Berni (painter and muralist master of portraits). This is really the section not to be missed if you only have to do one, with several works by talented Uruguayan painters such as Rafael Barradas, Joaquín Torres García or Pedro Figari.

Riches collections malheureusement assez mal mises en valeur, assez mal éclairées, aspect global un peu fouillis, personnel peu professionnel, manque cruel de panneaux explicatifs et d'une organisation plus "thématique" qui donnerait du sens à la visite. Mérite tout de même le détour. Visite gratuite.

Gratuit, riches en oeuvres "classiques " (Degas, Monet, école hollandaise) européennes, On y découvre bien sur d'excellent peintres d’Amérique du sud. aux deuxièmes étages:une partie bien plus contemporaine qui contient d'autres oeuvres que peintures et sculptures; il y en a pour tous les goûts.

Un musée des Beaux-Arts passionnant et très riche et il est gratuit. A mon passage, il y avait une excellente exposition temporaire des muralistes mexicains (Rivera, Siqueiros, Orozco).

De très nombreuses œuvres à voir dans un musée bien situé au cœur de Buenos Aires.
Il y a bien entendu une place de choix à l'art Européen mais également de nombreuses œuvres d’Amérique du Sud.
Le musée est gratuit, situé dans un cadre agréable et mérite qu'on y passe quelques heures

Un musée intéressant qui vaut le détour (en plus c'est gratuit), surtout pour les passionnés de l'art. Il ne faut cependant pas s'attendre à voir quelque chose d'exceptionnel par rapport aux musées en Europe, étant donné la grande quantité d’œuvres d'art européen qui y sont affichées, mais il y a très souvent des expositions temporaires qui rendent le MNBA dynamique.
