Modern Art Museum

Born in 1956.

The Buenos Aires Modern Art Museum (‘MANBA’) was started by art critic, Rafael Squirru, in 1956. Since its creation, it occupied several spaces across the city, until the collections were gathered in its current building in 1986. This building, located at the heart of the San Telmo neighbourhood, used to be the old Piccardo cigarette factory. The museum displays Argentinean and international works of art from 1920 to the present day. The varied collection portrays the development of modern art, with the aim to bring society closer to avant-garde trends. It boasts a Bookshop and Document Centre, which provide the public with books, newspapers and specialised documentation on Argentinean and international art from the 20th century to the present day.
