The MNBA, in the heart of upscale Recoleta, is the proud heart of Argentine culture.

The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (MNBA) is housed in a former drinking water filtration centre, converted into a museum in 1895.

Today, its permanent collection spans the Middle Ages to the 20th century. Among its more than 12,000 treasures are paintings by Rubens, Cézanne, Chagall and Rembrandt. Argentine masters Benito Quinquela Martín, Fernando Fader and Lucio Fontana are well represented, as are Impressionist painters like Manet, Renoir, and Monet.
