We enterred the museum of modern art and enjoyed the works and the beautiful setting. We could not continue across the street as there was a power failure. Too bad we wanted to see it.

Interesting items from Central and South American artists and well displayed, definitely worth the 3.50 USD entrance. Ceiling fans keep the place relatively cool. I especially enjoyed the Goya/Dali exhibition and the video installation in connection with it (only in Spanish).

If this gallery was in any city in Europe or North America there would be a queue to get in every morning. You can enter on your own or take a guided tour through the two well preserved colonial houses that make up this gallery...More
