Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Rosario


Housed in a brightly painted grain silo on the waterfront, this museum is part of Rosario’s impressive riverbank renewal. It features temporary exhibitions, mostly by young local artists, and of varying quality, housed in small galleries spread over eight floors. There’s a good view of river islands from the mirador (viewpoint) at the top and an attractive cafe-bar by the river.

At 5pm daily there are free guided tours in Spanish.
