I visited the museum with my girlfriend and it was a great surprise. We discover some local artists that we didn't know. Very nice museum even-though it was empty. Our hotel was close to the museum so we decided to visit it, worth it

This is a world-class museum. Because of its massive size, I recommend you not try to visit the entire museum in one day. On your first visit, i suggest you take a docent tour of museum highlights to get an overview. Then, limit the remainder...More

The Met is a good place to know about the local modern art scene. Once you pay the admission fee, there are 2 floors to explore. Strangely, on the day of our visit, the air conditioning system wasn't quite able to cool down the top...More

Don’t usually like paying for galleries but at 100 pesos it was worth a look and a good way to escape heat. Has an interesting array of exhibits
