Overall is ok, unfortunately it's very government oriented. Venezuelan artists are quite gifted though. And, you get to see "Miranda en la Carraca" by Arturo Michelena. Masterpiece.

It has a very good collection of modern art. The entrance fee is cheap, and for sure its a very different thing to do in the city.

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
