Is a museum a museum if it doesn't have a gift shop? Or a cafeteria? Or if it doesn't accept donations or public/private subsidies?

Well, yes, it's a museum, but a very different one.

There are five Ralli Museums worldwide. Ralli Museum Punta del Este was the first. The Ralli mission is simple: acquaint the public with contemporary Latin American art (while also showing some surrealist and classic art).

The building itself is eye-catching, caught between green grass and crisp blue skies.

The two floors of Latin American art (plus exhibits featuring artists like Marc Chagall and Salvador Dali) are impressive, but it was the sculpture garden that I spent the most time in. So pretty and picturesque, with lots of whimsical artworks.

This museum is a must visit place when in Punta Del Este. It has free entry and is full of bronzes in the gardens through which one can walk. There are also two floors indoors which has a collection of paintings and sculpture by some of Latin America's most talented artists complemented by works by Dali, Chagall and others. Of particular interest are the many caricature paintings of past and current day events. The Ralli Museum is set in a beautiful building itself. This is one of the best museums I have visited offering something totally different from what one would expect.

Museum was so much fun! There are 2 courtyards with sculptures, one of which was a significant Dali collection on the sides. Inside there is a nice selection of South American and some international painters. All modern and most are very fun. Museum is laid out like a colonial hacienda. Not many stairs and very accessible. Doesn’t take long to visit.

I'm not a big Art guy and know and admire Dali but wouldn't go out of my way to do this. As the feature part of a ship shore excursion, however, I'm glad we went. GREAT art, discovered a few artists we really liked, a wide and varied collection, a whole courtyard devoted to Dali and pieces I'd never seen. We spent about 50 or 80 minutes. More than enough time, even if you linger. Definitely worth seeing and if you're in the part of the world don't miss the opportunity to see it. It's worth your time, will 'culture you up' a little and even if you have never been to an art gallery and don't give a crap about art - go anyway. It won't be time wasted, trust me. It nothing else it will get you out of the heat and give you something different and pretty to look at. Even kids will get something out of this. Serious art people will probably get a lot more out of it but joe average tourist types will also enjoy it.

This city's inspirational culture shines at the Ralli Museum located in a lovely Spanish style building in the fashionable Beverly Hills neighborhood. You'll be able to browse a collection of paintings and sculpture by some of Latin America's most talented artists, complimented by European works by Dali, Chagall and others. Don't miss it!

The Ralli Museum in Punta del Este is really a place worth visiting! We loved this museum. The layout is perfectly planned, both the indoor and outdoor parts. Certainly you should not miss this wonderful museum, that houses so many of Salvador Dali's works when in Punta del Este. The entrance is free.

If you drive (or go by taxi) it will take you 12 minutes (Ave Roosevelt) to go the 6 kilometers to the museum. We just did.

It was a long drive (about 20 minutes) from the Port to this Museum where we passed by one beach after the other. It's a shame we could not stop and try to take a dip at these beaches.

To our surprise, we had to enter a "richy" kind of neighborhood on our way to this museum. The houses are big and the lawns are neatly "manicured". There are also fancy restaurants along the way. Later, I learned that locals call it the Belair of Punta del Este.

Excluding me, no one in our group wanted to enter this FREE museum. I guessed we're all "over-museum" after visiting many of them during our 20-day cruise. I promised myself that I would go back and visit Punta Del Este on my OWN. Definitely, I would include this museum in my list of places to visit next time I'm back in this city.
