  • It is a small and little-visited museum. But the work of Xul Solar is really beautiful and the House Museum is also very interesting. Lacks, to my taste, some explanation of the work and the artist. I went several times and think keep going...

  • A Very nice place to see art
  • Great expo, very close to the Subte and a precious architectural gem with all the natural lighting.

  • Museum rather fulfils the role of an art gallery, small reproductions with very little explanation. Nevertheless, the visit (of an hour) is pleasant and enjoyable. I recommend knowing something of the artist, or have read previously, since it has much to learn. The museum it's more like and art gallery, small reproductions with little to no explanation... Despite that, it's welcoming and enjoyable. The complete tour takes about an hour, and it's not that expensive, but do not expect to see big artworks from one of the best argentine artists.
