  • Highly recommended for people who are truly interested in art. A postponed visit.

  • Museum which proves to be a white elephant, a spending money nonsense, full of employees without work and with a display of very poor art. Not recommended.

  • The Museum I call it attention since it began to build... It is an imposing building and the work of the fur of the entrance I loved! Is the famous artist Marta minujin when I went had a photography exhibition of the Argentine rock that seemed no big deal but say that they always change them and make things very taken over... We have to make another visit... Data... the entrance is free and they do not have access for the disabled which is very bad
