  • It is a beautiful museum that is a historic mansion, with a range of paintings that leave who impressed observes them, adjacent to the Museum is small but relaxing Japanese garden

  • By works, but most especially the ride, in my opinion is the Japanese garden which is located behind the Museum.

  • The Museum has nice collection and great temporary exhibitions. Is in the green area which includes the Japanese garden. Opportunity to view works of Blanes as "los 33 Orientales" oath (it is possible to obtain some information on this work), "La cautiva" and others. When I went (December/2016), presented excellent exhibition of José Cúneo and Pedro Figari. It's worth it. Admission is free. Reserve around 1 hour, at least.
