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.

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

This museum is world-class. I just noted earlier reviews concerned with the dumbing down of people through the removal of publicly accessible art (and other means).

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.

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
