Excelent place, well maintained. Incredible collection from contemporary artists from all over Latin America. the venezuelan plastic artists and cinetic are specially spectacular. The best way to go is park your car at the ex hotel sheraton. Wonderfull collection worthwhile the visit

Very basic. A few works by Picasso, Miro, Bracque and local artists. It can be visited in less than an hour. No coffee shop, no souvenir shop available.

The Picasso exhibit was nothing short of spectacular. It was also a great place to escape the demonstrations that were going on near the capitol building a mile or so away.

It used to be excellent, but the socialist government thinks art is a capitalistic illness, I have heard many works have been removed
