  • Amazing Multi-media exposition revolving around the effects of the US vs USSR cold war on Central America. So moving - so amazing - I cant say enough - you must see it! 
  • Small spaces well organized showing the art of Costa Rica. The Park in the surroundings is also nice

  • This space opens its doors to exhibitions temporary of high quality and popularity, to show us the trends current to level world, in different areas artistic, from photography, sculpture and painting, until design graphic or of product. It is a great place to fall in love more than art.
