An extensive journey around the classic art galleries of Buenos Aires, this tour in the company of an expert guide will leave you with a greater appreciation of the city’s role as a cultural center. 

Art among Grandeur

The barrio of San Telmo – the oldest in the city – provides a fitting (if contrasting) setting for two galleries devoted to modern art. Stepping into the Museo de Arte Moderno (which everyone calls MAMBA), you will be able to see its excellent range of temporary exhibitions. Your private guide will also take you to the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (or MACBA). Specialising in abstract art, it is a comparatively new gallery that revels in being at the cutting edge of the Buenos Aires cultural scene. 

National Home of Art

Moving to the north of the city, your guide will take you into the barrio of Palermo. The product of Buenos Aires’ 19th-century expansion – and surprisingly not named after the capital of Sicily – the area possesses an Italianate charm. Entering Buenos Aires’ most illustrious gallery, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, you will be able to see many important works by national artists as well as European painters such as Rembrandt’s Portrait of a Young Woman, or Van Gogh’s Le Moulin de la Galette. The largest collection of public art in Latin America has a great deal to offer visitors. It is very easy to get lost in its 24 exhibition halls listening to your guide discussing the different variations of Argentine art as they point you to examples.

Palermo’s Other Treasures

If you can bear to leave the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, the Museo de Arte Popular José Hernandez is nearby. Only a small museum, it nevertheless offers the chance to see the different variations of Argentine art, from urban to indigenous. Your guide will also take you to the Museo de Arte Latin Americano de Buenos Aires. Commonly known by its initials of MALBA, the gallery is based on the collection of real estate businessman Eduardo Constantini. Surrounded by important Latin American pieces of art, including Tarsila do Amaral’s Abaporu and Antonio Berni’s Manifestación, this spacious glass-surrounded gallery provides an excellent architectural setting for its pieces.
