This art collection is a must if you are interested in Argentinian art. I visited the permanent collection which gave a tastefully curated cross section of works by Argentinian artists from the 18-hundreds to present times.

Impresive building and location. The private colection includes one floor dedicated to the most important Argentine painters. Another floor to international artists including Turner and Petoruti amongs other. Worth visiting without a doubt!

The collection being a private one that was started around the 60's just as from pure pleasure and because she liked the specific art piece is incredible .... To have left such an art collection for all to enjoy....most of the art is Argentinian with some excellent international pieces...I didn't know anything about Argentinian art and took the guided tour...

The main important thing here is to point out that this is not an art museum, but a private collection... therefore it is quite eclectic and personal, yet very interesting. Highly recommendable

The collection here is okay - nothing special - the building in many ways, is the star attraction. If you're looking for an excuse to get to Puerto Maduro, this will get you there and then you can wander the wetlands afterwards.

The collection is not outstanding but the building and the organization are superb.- Most of the paints are of Argentine painters but are a few foreign.- It is remarkable a Turner paint (Juliet and ther nurse) and a Brueghel (The Bethlehem census) also are important paints like Juanito Laguna series of Argentine painter Raúl Soldi.-

It's interesting to see a private collection as opposed to one curated by an expert. It leaves you space to draw your own opinions about taste & theme. The gallery is small but with some great pieces. There's no café but plenty nearby.

The museum occupies several floors and is a mixture of various types of art. Most of our group found the art tour boring and we were all ready to leave shortly after arriving. A WORD OF CAUTION; THE LAST STEPS LEADING TO THE ENTRY FLOOR ARE NOT WELL MARKED AND ONE CAN EASILY MISS THE LAST STEP AND FALL.

Eclectic and personal collection. There are incredible paintings and strange curatorial approach. This is not a traditional experience. Emphasis on Modern art.

Because this is a personal collection it is very eclectic and a very fun glimpse into the mind of a very accomplished and worldly woman, "Amalita" Fortabat. We particularly enjoyed the pieces by Argentine artists and were intrigued by the sculpture Gyula Kosice who emigrated to Argentina from the Slovak city of Kosice -- also one of our favorite places....

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
