3. Music and Art at Museo de Bellas Artes de Buenos Aires
On the evening of April 24, MNBA will offer the possibility of a different type of visit to the museum. The idea is to put to use areas of the museum that are usually closed for public visits, like the terrace and the ground floor. There, an art exhibition and live music will create a unique atmosphere.
