The Basics

The striking museum, designed by acclaimed Argentinean architect Alejandro Bustillo in 1933, divides its 12,000-piece collection into Masterpieces and Argentinean Art. The belle epoque building can be seen on many walking tours of the Recoleta neighborhood, as well as some city sightseeing tours. If you want a closer look, consider a private tour of the city that will allow you to explore the museum collection with insight from a local guide.

Excellent Day Out
This tour was perfect despite the very rainy day. Carina, out guide, was both extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her city, but more importantly, a lot of fun to be with. We got to see a lot, learn a lot, and laugh a lot. We would highly recommend both the tour and Carina.
