Fodor's Expert Review Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA)

San Telmo Museum/Gallery

Some 7,000 contemporary artworks make up the permanent collection at this newly renovated, block-long museum. Formerly the site of a tobacco company, the MAMBA retains its original exposed-brick facade and fabulous wooden doors with wrought-iron fixtures. Inside, galleries showcasing a carefully curated selection of paintings, sculptures, and new media are complemented by large temporary exhibitions of local or Latin American works as well as smaller installations. Recent highlights include the unusual portraits of superstar collective Grupo Mondongo, who eschew paint in favor of materials like crackers, sliced ham, and chewing gum.
