it has been turned into an art and culture museum, free to the public and with exceptional collections. the collections change so you may find something different every few weeks or so. Overall it was one of the most rewarding visits I had in GDL.

All around, a nice facility. There is a small auditorium for lectures (check out the ceiling). The exhibit galleries are spacious and well lit. I think most if not all exhibitions and shows are free to the public. Regardless, it seems like an underutilized facility.
