The annual Noche de los Museos celebrates Buenos Aires' vibrant visual arts.
Around 200 museums and cultural spaces across the city open their doors to the public for free, from 8pm until 3am. As well as permanent collections and exhibitions, some venues will show films, or put on concerts and theatre productions.
1. Milla de los Museos: The largest concentration of museums is in what is known as the Milla de los Museos (the Museum Mile), a stretch of a mile or so up the Av. del Libertador from Retiro to Palermo. Amongst others, the area is home to:
Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Av. del Libertador 1473, Recoleta)
Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo (Av. del Libertador 1902, Recoleta)
Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA, Av. Figueroa Alcorta 3415, Palermo)
Museo Evita (Lafinur 2988, Palermo)
Centro Cultural Recoleta (Junín 1930, Recoleta)
2. Milla Cultural del Sur: The southern neighbourhoods from Puerto Madero down to La Boca have seen a bit of a boom in museums and arts centres over the last decade. The Milla Cultural del Sur (Cultural Mile South) includes:
Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA, Av. San Juan 350, San Telmo)
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Buenos Aires (MACBA, Av. San Juan 328, San Telmo)
Usina del Arte (Agustín Caffarena 1, la Boca),
Museo del Humor (Av. de los Italianos 851, Puerto Madero).
How to get from one place to the next
90 bus lines will be available for the public to travel freely between one venue and another, until 3pm.
This year, volunteers from the city's volunteer programme BA Solidaria will be collecting non-perishable foodstuffs for the Fundación Banco de Alimentos (Food Bank Foundation). Anyone who donates will have their name put in a draw to win a bicycle. A list and map of the collection points can be found here.
