In 2019, the Museum is renewed to present to the public the permanent galleries dedicated to the Pre-Columbian Art and Colonial Art collections in the ground floor. For this reason, it will close its doors from February 19 to April 11.

Situated on Libertador Avenue 1473, this museum has one of the most important art collections in Latin America. The ground floor of the museum houses a fine international collection of paintings from the Middle Ages up to the 20th century. It contains paintings by El Greco, Rubens, Tiepolo, Van de Velde, Tiziano, Zurbarán, and Goya, among others.

Nineteenth century French painting is thoroughly represented, with works by Corot, Manet, Boudin, Cézanne, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin, Degas, and others. There are also works by 19th century and early 20th century Spanish artists, including Ramón Casas, Ignacio Zuloaga and Pablo Picasso.

There are is an outstanding collection of sculptures, one of the most beautiful and important of which is one of the few original copies of Rodin´s “The kiss” that exist around the world.

On one of the most recent renovation projects the Museum has opened a new room for the Guerrico Collection.

The upper floor is devoted to the art of the 20th century, most to Argentinean and Latin American art, but international art, too. Its exhibition rooms bring together several avant-garde masters from the beginning of the century such as Klee, Kandinsky, De Chirico, Carra, Modigliani, Picasso, Léger, Xul Solar, Pedro Figari, Emilio Pettoruti, among others.

Location: Avenida del Libertador 1473, Recoleta.
Entrance to the Museum is free, except for the temporary exhibitions. 
Opening times:
It is open from 11,00 am to 8.30 PM Tuesday to Friday, and 10.00 AM to 8.00 PM on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
