Country house museum with small Japanese garden attached. Three or four discrete exhibitions, including permanent ones of Figari and Blanes and then other Uruguayan painters, and a temporary one of Lacy Duarte (who seems to have a monopoly on exhibitions in Montevideo this month!) The...More

The museum is free and has different types of paintings. It is really small but very cozy. Definetly worth a visit. Behind the museum there is the japanes garden and not far from there, there is the botanical garden.

Please do not visit this museum with high expectations. It is small but there are several very worthwhile pieces of Latin American art. It is an eccentric little museum but worth visiting for the art lover with an open mind.
