For a mere $3 to be paid at the gift shop in the lower courtyard, this museum with multiple separate gallery rooms is indeed curious. Located on the second floor, each themed area in a separate room numerically labeled along the courtyard balcony. Several of the seven or so rooms or galleries were closed and as deserted as it was, a few struck me as a little creepy - could've been the shrunken head (yes, really) in the first tribal gallery. Another room was an art and crafts classroom for kids, with a passionate teacher eager to share about the fun and innovative projects they were doing. Along the balconies are a few intricately carved wooden ox carts and canoes, all gifts from other nations. Katrina, a monstrous Day of The Dead skeleton "doll" standing about ten feet high greets you on the stairwell. Overall, it is an odd adventure. Be sure to stop in the lower courtyard at the Sala Pablo Casals, a small but amazing (and free) gallery with his lovely music and history. and there is a cute little coffee shop next to the Casals room with both indoor and outdoor searing. All close by 400 or 430 pm and the museum closes at lunch (12-1) so plan accordingly.
