The building is amazing, even though not in it's best shape. You'll find a great collection of modern and contemporary art there, so it's really worth going if that's among you... read more

This museum is right across from the Archaeology Museum. It is also very inexpensive to visit. The employees do not speak and English, and all of the signs are in Spanish. The building itself inside is incredible, almost worth the cost just to see inside. It's not a huge museum, but it was a nice way to spend an hour.... More

The guy that was working there was really friendly, gave me some information on transportation, but I wished there as a guide.

Went there without really knowing What to expect. On the end, i was really happy I went, lots of paintings and sculptures are really strong. Close to the zoo and two others museums, so it is worth getting the transmetro of Guaté City.

The Anthropology Museum was closed for a private event so I walked across the courtyard to the Nat. Museum of Contemporary Art. I walked clockwise through the building and enjoyed the collection. There were some slower spots, but I found some pieces that were very compelling. The descriptions were only in Spanish. I was able to understand enough that it... More

If you dont like art but you are tring to like it, please visit somewhere else but here. So sad and small, so old as well. And bad maitenence. For what they charge they should do something. Waist of time.

There's a small collection of work by Mérida, so if you're a fan then it's probably worth a visit. There was also when we were there a guest exhibition of Japanese works, which had some interesting pieces. The rest is a bit of a hodge podge. There are a handful of interesting things, but mixed in with some really, really... More
