Malba: Colleciòn Constantini - Museum Buenos Aires - Argentina

The newest and most prestigious addition to Buenos Aires' impressive array of museums is the Museo Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (Malba). Opened in 2001 and personally stocked and financed by Eduardo Constantini - a wealthy art collector/philanthropist - the second floor (first floor for Argentines) permanent collection presents an impressive panorama of 20th century Latin American art. The third floor is reserved for cutting-edge exhibits and fascinating retrospectives from Latin America and across the globe. On the first floor, a movie theater shows mostly avant-garde films and cycles of cult films, while forums and roundtable chats are routinely held. A pleasant café, bookstore, and basement library round out the inclusive museum, making it the perfect place to spend an entire afternoon. Wednesday admission is free, but the museum often fills to an uncomfortable capacity. Although the Malba attracts many serious art viewers, inviting modern architecture, dynamic installations and interactive exhibits give the place a playful feel. Cap off your visit with a stroll through the high-rent neighborhood behind the museum, where some of the city's most beautiful homes are an exhibit on their own.
