It hold a large collection of art masterpieces. A lot of rooms are closed though. What a pity. They need to open more rooms. No permanent exhibitions here. It has the potential to be one of the best museums in Latin America.

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.
