Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires (MALBA) Tours

The MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires) is Buenos Aires’ leading modern art institution. Since opening in 2001, the museum has amassed a varied collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and installation works by artists from all corners of Latin America.

The Basics
A MALBA admission ticket includes access to the museum’s vast permanent collection and temporary exhibitions, and guided tours are available in both English and Spanish. Many people combine a visit to the MALBA with other Buenos Aires art museums such as the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art (Museo de Arte Moderno), the National Museum of Fine Art (Museo de Bellas Artes), and the Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat Art Collection (Coleccion de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat). You can also explore the MALBA as part of a city tour that includes neighborhoods like Palermo, La Boca, San Telmo, and Recoleta. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Onsite facilities include the Restaurant Ninina, a museum shop, and free Wi-Fi.
  • Audio guides are available in several different languages.
  • The MALBA is accessible for wheelchair users and strollers.  

How to Get There
The MALBA museum is located along Av. Pres. Figueroa Alcorta in the Palermo neighborhood. Several buses stop outside the museum, and the Saldias train station is about a 10-minute walk away. The closest Subte (underground) station is Facultad de Derecho (Line H), about a 20-minute walk away.

When to Get There
The museum is open daily except Tuesdays year-round. On Wednesdays, entry is half-price and the museum stays open until 9pm. To beat the crowds, opt for an early-afternoon visit on a weekday. 

A Walking tour of the MALBA
Founder Eduardo Constantini's private collection, more than 220 19th- and 20th-century pieces displayed chronologically throughout the first-floor galleries, is the focal point of the museum. A portfolio of the modern art movement, the collection also portrays a strong sense of geographical identity through a number of evocative political and cultural works. Highlights include art by Argentines Xul Solar and Antonio Berni, Chilean Roberto Matta, a Frida Kahlo self-portrait, Brazilian Tarsila Do Amaral’s much-celebrated Abaporu, and innovative installations by Julio Le Parc. The top-floor gallery, meanwhile, houses temporary exhibitions and a small cinema that shows art-house movies, mostly in Spanish.
