A rare find in Montevideo, something cultural… the entry fee is low, the exhibit is pretty interesting, lots of "filler" to make it worth being called a museum of sorts… Two lines and a triangle don't make for the best art out there! You get what you can get in Montevideo...

I wasn't crazy about the art work, it's not my style, but there are three floors, accessible by stairs, in an old building and you could spend an hour tops going through it.
I didn't go in the first time that I went by it since it was full of school kids going on a tour.

It deserves a visit if you are interested in art and history. Interesting paintings. Most interesting: photos of the artist and his familiy, in '20s and '30s

A small museum, but quite a nice collection of Torres-Garcia's works. A reasonably thorough survey of his development and quite conveniently located near the entry to the Old City - certainly worth stopping in.

Nice museum, well managed and cured. As it is named Torres García works are shown, not necesarily the best but very representative of his work. Nice neighbourhood to go for a walk during the day.
