Little museum. Bit boring. In fact the museum concentrates around the work of the artist de Torres Garcia who might be a big name in Uruguay but not really well known outside. For art historians it might be interesting to look at the work and compare it to the developments outside of Uruguay. ****
This museum is more a shop than a museum, I mean the Torres Garcia's works are incomplete, poor investigations about his work and theoretical conceptions, books about the Artist doesn't published by the museum, there isn't a lecture place about the artist, management have to be improved in honor to Torres Garcia's memory.
Carlos FaroppaIf you're a tourist not miss it. If you're city old witn awhile and visit it more of a city would have the work of towers that you can see there!show original
