  • At the front desk girl was lovely. The Museum is seen very active, with a multitude of proposals of various types (music, cinema, etc.) At the entrance you are after with a mobile and sound installation of glass which is a marvel, besides with a mural of Miró. When we were had two exhibitions, one of Liliana Porter that excited, great and another of Juan Pérez Aguirregoikoa that divided us opinion, causing intense family debate. In any case, that is a goal of art, cause the debate of ideas. Very interesting section to tell us how works the Museum inside and the Super part teaching where the public makes his interpretation of the works and just forming part of the same. The exterior sculptures are also of interest. An unexpected surprise and visit. Highly recommended if you like culture and art.
