  • Only the main floor was open when we visited, but it was still a good collection inside the permanent exhibits. There was a mixture of historic and contemporary pieces and good interpretative information in both Spanish and English. The real highlight for us was the sculpture garden that was full of many interesting plants (and quite a few large, entertaining iguanas) in addition to the art itself.
  • Small but interesting collection. I actually prefer smaller museums that aren't so overwhelming. We happened to go in a Saturday, and it was free admission! Family day. Guided tours available.
