Very interesting. Great museum if you appreciate art. The museum is in Spanish but they give you an English leaflet to help.

Didn't know the artist but his work and associated exhibits are definitely worth seeing. Acnuna's influences include pre-Colombian culture, colonial art & contemporary painting (he lived 1904-1993 & was encouraged by Picasso).
