  • This museum is split into 6 sections. One was closed during our visit. One of these was a temporary exhibit. Good chance to learn about the effect of the civil war on civilians and artists alike through art. Majority of information is in Spanish. Part of bigger complex including the theatre, gardens (pretty average) and a large memorial. Resturant on site, opens at midday. Museum entry was $1.5USD I think. Drinking water available to the right hand side of the reception desk (towards the toilets). No bags allowed in. Visited May 2016
  • A lot to see here!
  • Very good place

  • A good choice of Museum to appreciate the art of the country but was very good to give the opportunity to emerging artists, who are mostly young people with great talent.
