The area
Address
Neighbourhood: San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.

We visited this museum on a Wednesday and really enjoyed it. They have a small collection with some really interesting pieces. The dance exhibit on the lower level was very interesting. The first floor was closed on the day we visited. Admission was free the day we were here.

The museum has an impeccable collection in an attractive building. The visit was a nice calm break in the midst of the buzzle of the lively San Telmo quarter. Lovely cafe, shop and great aircondition. Well worth a visit!

Well worth the visit, quite a lot of great pieces here. Admission is only 3,000 pesos (barely $4 cash at the unofficial exchange rate, or twice that much if you charge it or exchange you money at a bank; i.e., if you don't know, the official bank exchange at the beginning of September 2023 is 350 pesos per US$1 and that's what your credit card company will charge you, but if you bring crisp US $100s with you, Western Union and other currency exchange places will give you about 700 pesos per US$1).

Interesting museum of modern art. Find it fascinating that every museum has an area closed (even in their permanent collections) just because. When asked when it will open, the answer is :maybe tomorrow). That said I always find it interesting to see the artists housed at museums.

The building is very cool looking too.

Wow- what a place! The fact is, I visited twice, there was so much to see and absorb. I imagine the exhibitions are ever changing. There were a few slow galleries during my visit, but I was astonished at how the atmosphere could change from gallery to gallery. From bright poster and kinetic art, to dark surreallist/symbolist jumbles, to innovative photography, from charming to provocative. There is a large suite of galleries in the basement- easy to overlook but so much more to see, at least during my visit.Admission is about one dollar if you are from el Norte. Next to the MACBA, and free Wednesday if you are super cheap.

On our recently visit to BA the weather was warmer than we expected, I wasn't feeling well and walking around the antique market in San Telmo did not help with my stomach as it had a unique (not in a good way) smell. We took refuge in the museum. There were not as many exhibits as I anticipated given the size of the building. That said the exhibits were unique, interesting and enjoyable. I don't know much about art but really enjoyed seeing the different sculptures, paintings, pictures and other art in the museum. And the cherry on top? The cost was under $1 each. The museum does not allow bags or food / water inside however they do have free lockers just by the front desk for you to stow your items while touring the exhibits. We spent ~2 hours in the museum. If you are someone who reads each of the plaques or explanations of the pieces you may plan for more than that.

If you like modern art, but don't have all day, this museum is just enough to give you a taste. Interactive displays of the unusual use of textiles and the illusion of being underwater in a pool...what fun! There's also a nice cafe to grab a bite or drink and sit back for a spell.

Bonus, no entry fee the day we went. Not sure if every Wednesday. They have modern abstract permanent collection along with the Sergio de Loof exhibit that was fun and whimsical take on recycled couture. Think Project Runway Unconventional Challenge with a bub
ble wrap gown. Surreal experience with tents and colors. Please go!
