Horarios de atención: Tuesday to Sunday from 12 a.m. to 8 p.m.

This museum, also known as the Fortabat Museum, was inaugurated in 2008 to show the public the private art collection of Amalita Fortabat, businesswoman, philanthropist and art collector, from one of the most aristocratic and traditional wealthier families in Argentina. Although her art collection focuses mainly on works by great Argentine artists, such as Berni, Castagnino, Petorutti, Pérez Celis or Fader, great works by international artists such as Klimt, Rodin, Warhol or Dalí, and sculptures and others are also highlighted historical objects belonging to ancient Greece and ancient Egypt. The museum is located on Embarcadero 4 of Puerto Madero and is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 12 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is Pesos Argentinos 140 and there are guided tours at no extra cost on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 5 p.m., and Wednesdays, Sundays and holidays at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Not to be missed: Being in this museum there are some very personal pieces that you cannot miss. Beyond the works of Rodin, Dalí, Castagnino or Petorutti, which are really beautiful, it is worth seeing the portraits that were made of the very Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat and her family. There are two pastel portraits of her granddaughters made by Antonio Berni, two "Amalita" paintings by Alejo Vidal-Quadras, and the iconic photograph that Andy Warhol took and retouched to her style in 1980. Not to be missed, admire, and learn a little more about the lifestyle of this wealthy Argentine family.
