  • Great opportunity to meet Uruguayan contemporary artists in a just and pleasant place. Staff gentilíssimo. Perfect combination with a stroll through the Parque Rodó. Check out the opening hours before setting off.

  • If you do not have anything to do walk through the parque Rodo and between to appreciate works of art. If it is not fond of works of art do not waste time, cause you won't have interest.

  • There is no information about the works and many of them was not allowed visitation. Access to the Park is ugly and the Museum staff won't answer your questions.
