Savor the city's art scene
Buenos Aires is visibly teeming with artists of all kinds. If it's fine art you're after, stop by some of the city’s major museums, such as the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (often referred to as MALBA) and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts). Cultural centers like Centro Cultural Recoleta host impressive, and free, rotating exhibits. The gallery circuit is just as important: Look for exhibition openings and organized gallery nights in Palermo and Recoleta, where you can appreciate locally produced artwork and see the art crowd in action with champagne flutes in hand.
