“Even more useless than the UN, but a nice building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

In case you haven’t heard of it, the OAS is sort of like a UN of the nations of the Americas, i.e., Western Hemisphere. Unlike the UN, they’re rarely in the news and generally avoid controversy. Though they take themselves seriously, it’s really little more than an opportunity for government cronies to shmooze at taxpayer expense. Unless there’s a special event, security and staff are on full-time siesta. In addition to visiting the attractive main building, go around the corner to the Art Museum of the Americas for a look at changing exhibits of modern art from Latin America
