  • This is the main Modern Art Museum in Guatemala City. It is hard to get to by foot so you will need to take a taxi or drive there. It has very relevant art created by Guatemalan artists. It needs to be much better cared for but it is a very important stop if you are in Guatemala.
  • Nice Guatemalan art pieces in a beautiful building
  • Good place to visita, beautiful art.
  • It is a small museum, it has tried to adapt the building to the Museum. It has works by modern Guatemalan art, 1900-2000, there is a small room of travelling exhibitions and the room Carlos Mérida. National Q.5, 00
