Museums of Buenos Aires

One of my favorite things to do while visiting Buenos Aires is to go to some of the city's museums. The most prestigious and favorite is the National Museum of Fine Arts ( Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes).

This museum is located in Recoleta and it is free! The museum host works by Goya, Picasso, Monet, Rodin, Van Gogh, and many more. The Museum's 11,000 piece collection includes works from 18th and 19th century European, and Argentine artists.
The Picasso collection is worth just visiting!
You can also go to the new MALBA ( Museum of Latin American Art) Which has an extesive collection of Latine American artists. http://www.malba.org.ar/web/home.php

There is a new museum  that just opened up located in the chic Puerto Madero district. Coleccion de arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat  Museum is a modern  cement structure that houses a collection of art from Amalia Lacroze collection. Locroze de Fortabat was a wealthy industrialist. The colections include: Warhol, Dali, Brueghel and Klimt. Also included are Argentine and Latin American artists. http://www.coleccionfortabat.org.ar/
