One of the top attractions of the city in particular for those with a thirst for culture; after visiting you could take a walk to the Museo de Bellas Artes, and complement your cultural day tour.

Overall is ok, unfortunately it's very government oriented. Venezuelan artists are quite gifted though. And, you get to see "Miranda en la Carraca" by Arturo Michelena. Masterpiece.

It has a very good collection of modern art. The entrance fee is cheap, and for sure its a very different thing to do in the city.
