We used the lift to get to the 5th floor and walked down each floor. The explanatory video about Torres García was very good as was the main exhibition.

The mural opposite the museum is an invitation to the collection. From figurative to abstract, spread out over 4 floors. This artist definitely deserves more attention from the international community.

Located on pedestrian street sarandi, near the Independence Square. It keeps in its collection the collection of the Uruguayan plastic artist Torres Garcia. It opens from Monday to Saturday from 10 to 18. There is also a small shop and art bookstore on the site.

Great examples of Torres Garcia artwork. Wonderful colors and gift shop is attached. He had a unique style and one of his most famous works was an upside down South America.
