  • The Museum is beautiful and the history and work of Gurvich are very rich. Carpets, ceramics and murals are impressive, I was charmed mainly with the works of universalism Constructivista. Admission is 100 pesos and is very worthwhile!

  • Beautiful, cosy and interesting museum in Ciudad Vieja, Montevideo. Gurvich came to Montevideo (to Barrio Sur, where many poor jewish immigrant landed) as a child, with his family, escaping religious persecution in their original Lithuania. He was disciple of Torres García and his work shows the influence of the great master of constructivism. It is worth it to enter and enjoy the original atelier of the artist as well as his work of art. Then one can walk by the Plaza Matriz (original colonial square) and admire the Colonial Cathedral and Cabildo.
  • Enjoyed the time there. Great building and wonderful art
  • Free on tuesdays! Really nice visit :)
  • Amazing museum, very complete in many aspects, 100 % advisable to visit.
  • It is a nice Museum. Small. Very easy to navigate. It is interesting for those who want an approach to the Uruguayan art. I thought it was better than the Torres García, is a few blocks east.

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.
