    Imagine a prison that now it is space for celebrating beauty and promoting art. Great exhibits and very friendly and helpful staff. In my next trip to Montevideo I will visit again.  more »

    Seeing how the space has been transformed from a prison to a modern art museum alone is worth the visit. Downstairs, you can walk into what used to be cells and see work from a different artist. Overall the art was interesting and culturally relevant. Plus, it's FREE. Just go! It's neat!

    It uses to be a prision, so the builing is pretty cool on its own. To top it off, they turned it into an contemporary art gallery. Worth the visit!

    Excellent cultural place. Will be good if the extensions will be opened soon. We will think to make an visual exhibition there soon.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
