The neoclassical building is being restored, but the modern building is still open. The art exhibitions are great and you won't regret visiting. Picasso's artworks are waiting for you.

Apart from the free museums (closed Mondays), the surrounding area is lovely and tranquil. It's nice to just relax on a stone bench, enjoying an ice cream, or contemplate away from the busy avenues. It's an easy, few blocks' walk from Bellas Artes metro station.
