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.

If you enjoy the art this is your place, interesting collection, not a crow place, it is close to Parque Central and Teatro Teresa Carreno Theater, great museum option in Caracas.

A very nice and interesting collection, free entrance, comfortable spaces and no crowds! I was practically alone in the museum when I visited, so I could really take my time and enjoy the pieces! Caracas does not offer as many attractions as some other Latin-American capitals, but this museum should not be missed if you pay a visit to this... More

Truthfully, there is not a wide variety of sites to see in Caracas. If you are spending a few days and want to see a bit of art or relish some time spent in air conditioning, this is a good choice. The Picasso pieces alone are worth the visit - his sketches are excellent.

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