The Ralli is one of the most beautifully laid out museums I have visited. The lighting is great and the collection of Latin American art work superb. I loved the sculpture courtyard and patio. For me one of the highlights was to see some works of Salvidor Dali. A great way to spend an afternoon.

This museum was founded by this guy who has about 4 of these museums in the world. He and his wife were very rich and had so much gorgeous art, they started these free museums. They prided themselves on not being commercial; no gift shops, cafes, entrance fees, etc. They featured South American artists. We explored the museum a little... More

What a wonderful collection of odd, quirky art. Works by Salvador Dali alongside pieces by people that you have never before encountered and all are intriguing. A must!

This free, small museum allows you to closely view many varied and interesting pieces of art and sculptures. Even it's this isn't your 'think' it has something for you and it only takes an hour. Well worth your time.

Fantastic pieces of art. Takes some time to see everything including sculptures. We only had 2 hours before the place closed and we had to rush to see everything. Be careful about the hours that the place is open because they're not open a lot.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CHECK THAT THE MUSEUM IS OPEN WHEN YOU INTEND TO GO. Oct to Dec the museum is open SATURDAY and SUNDAY 2-6pm. We walked there from the Los Dedos monument. It took maybe an hour of easy walking through nice neighborhoods. The museum has an amazing collection of modern South American artists and a small but... More
