  • The building itself is na modern marvel with a façade where the doors of 3 PHs are preserved. The building by inside is of concrete, with multiple stairs and walls quoted that sometimes are only aesthetic and not fulfilled a function. The painter's work consists of paintings, sculptures and even objects as a couple of musical instruments. Not to be missed

  • A beautiful Museum with a fine collection of works by Xul Solar. It is nice and well presented. I'll see if I can do a guided tour with my teenage grandchildren. Ideal for young people.

  • An amazing artist, who imagined amazing worlds, all put together in an eclectic building. Lovely.
  • Great expo, very close to the Subte and a precious architectural gem with all the natural lighting.
  • A Very nice place to see art
  • I went to visit him a few years ago by the FADU to analyze arquitcetonicamente inside and it is very good. On the samples I have no idea, but to see some architecture and interior spaces is great.
