Inaugurated in 1910, this stunning gallery was originally built to house an ice rink. It later served as a dance hall, before being transformed into an exhibition center in 1931. It is now the national government's most eminent institutional space for showcasing Argentine art, and site of the annual Salon Nacional de Artes Visuales - one of Argentina's most important art competitions, with prizes for paiting, sculpture, design, engraving, ceramics, textiles, photography, new media and installations. The space has its own collection of around 1,000 works as well as a library, and offers guided tours.

Open: Tuesday - Sunday, 12noon - 8pm.
