I have visited museums all over Europe, England and the US. Instituto Cultural Cavanas is at the same level of any World class museum. It holds wonderful art and the architecture of the building is stunning.

GO AGAIN? Yes. I recommend having an art guide to explain the murals. Interesting building, courtyards, and art. Plus, we had a conference banquet in one of the courtyards, with a Mariachi Band and Ballet Folklorico

Make sure you take a tour, they are free. They will explain things you would never see , unless you knew what to look for.
