  • I would like to congratulate the city of Guatemala, by having a spectacular Museum that allows to know the Guatemalan plastic arts; its content, atmosphere and the staff is the best. Highly recommended.

  • With outstanding works of Guatemalan artists as Manolo Gallardo and Efraín Recinos, this museum is worthy of visit. Paintings and various sculptures. I recommend that they do so at the same time to visit the Museum of Archaeology (the opposite) and the Zoo, for logistic purposes. It has permanent and temporary exhibitions. Due to its proximity to the airport, it is a good idea for the foreigners who visit us.

  • 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.
  • Brief on expressions of modern art, Efraín recinos present!.

  • One of the few good options in the city, handled very well, with public funds. There is good work but it could be more.
