  • This museum is a beautifully designed, spacious edifice. The two artists' exhibitions weren't my taste, but then, that's how it goes with art. It doesn't cost anything to visit, so go and check it out...  more »
  • Visited MAR many times. Exhibits are renewed and the space allows a wide variety of art pieces of different sizes. Even a whole room is introduced as a work of art!  more »
  • worth the walk or drive. A modern museum with some interesting displays (just don't expect the Tate Modern). The lobos made of metal alfajore wrappers at the front is also pretty cool.  more »
