The best museum and art gallery in the city showcases contemporary Latin American art, including a permanent collection of twentieth-century works by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Xul Solar, and Antonio Berni. The MALBA building itself is modern and beautiful, its limestone walls and glass ceilings drenched in sunlight on the inside and designed to be camouflaged amongst the square, concrete city blocks that surround it on the outside. The café has been somewhat of a revolving door of local chefs over the past few years, but is a nice place to linger for a coffee and afternoon pastry. A dynamic cultural center houses rotating exhibits of art and film.
