“Diverse but nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

The museum is unique in its museographic approach: The collection presented is diverse, but lacks cohesion. The only topic that ties the pieces together is that Pedro Coronel liked them.

“Great collection of paintings ans sculptures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

The art gallery is a must see. While viewing the large collections of art, there are signs in both English and Spanish that provide information on both artists and the styles of art being displayed.

“Pedro Coronel Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

It was a very nice museum. I really liked the old building very much. They had a lot of diffrent kind of masks which was very interesting. If you have time it's a good option to do it if not you just can leave it.

“Dissapointing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Lots of hype from the tour buses, but when we went there was really not much of interest. The exhibit was not particularly well presented - long halls with works hung one after the other in rows along the walls.

“Over hyped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The building is perhaps the most interesting aspect of this gallery. The arts works are really nothing special though the Oriental and African exhibits are interesting.
