It is worth the 200 Argentine Pesos charged foreign-born visitors to see this wonderful collection. Credit cards are accepted. This is a great place to spend a few rainy hours. The museum is not overwhelmingly large, but it is very well done.

I have visited this Art Museum many times, and it never disappoints. There are beautiful permanent collections of European and Argentinian artists of a wide variety of time frames. The building is beautiful as well and some times they show amazing temporary exhibitions.

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

Not sure but it's a great area near Recoleta so if it's not there will be nearby cafes to hang out in and the market might be in place as New Year's Day is on the weekend.
