National Museum of Fine Arts

A very important art gallery.

This is one of the country’s main art galleries. For many it is the most important gallery, but it hasn’t always been located in the Casa de Bombas, built in 1870. Its first collection was exhibited in the Bon Marché Galleries, now the Pacific Galleries. The collection received donations and acquired various pieces, until they had to find a new place in which to reorganise and safely display all the works. Since its inauguration in its current location in 1933, the building has undergone several transformations, such as the construction of the pavilion in 1961, built to house the temporary exhibitions. It boasts approximately 12,000 works of art, dating from the Middle Ages to the 21st century, and includes works by artists such as Rembrandt, Goya, Picasso, Rubens, El Greco, Renoir and Cézanne, as well as focusing on 19th century Argentinean art. It also houses an impressive library with 150,000 specimens, and an auditorium. Admission is free, so check out their website for any upcoming exhibitions and offers.
