Museo De Bellas Artes Bahía Blanca

The Museo de Bellas Artes de Bahía Blanca was created by the commission organising the Primer Salón de Arte de Bahía Blanca on the 11th April 1931. It was inaugurated on the 2nd August 1931.

Following its relocation several times the museum was finally moved in 2003 to its present location on Sarmiento street, a location it shares with Bahía Blanca’s Museo de Arte Contemporáneo.

Rather than to give responses, the purpose of contemporary art is to ask questions. This project is designed to encourage participants to re-think their environment using art and to thus participate in their own reality. The activity is especially designed for less centrally-located schools that may not have the possibility of visiting the museum.


The Asociación de Amigos Museo de Bellas Artes/ Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (AMACBA) encourages the development of art in Bahía Blanca and collaborates with governmental and non-governmental organisations in order to bring this about. It encourages an environment of cordiality and solidarity among its associates with the aim of improving their intellectual and cultural level.
