Located in the neighbourhood of San Telmo, the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires showcases more than 7000 works, covering important movements in modern art.
There are works by important Argentine artists from 1940s, 50s and 60s,as well as pieces by Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and Henri Matisse. The museum also hosts touring exhibitions and has a bookstore with publications on local artists.
The museum was created in 1956 by art critic Rafael Squirru. In 1989, it moved to its current site, a former warehouse that belonged to the Nobleza Piccardo tobacco company, and an outstanding example of British-designed brick and iron industrial buildings from the 19th century. The museum was re-launched in 2010 following a restoration project.
