This museum is world-class. I just noted earlier reviews concerned with the dumbing down of people through the removal of publicly accessible art (and other means). And while I agree entirely that this is the trend in Venezuela, and that this is completely and totally apparent on the ground, this museum does remain as a leader in terms of its collection still on display. Visit while you still can!! The architecture is also part of the attraction. While as far as I know the concrete jungle of the Parque Central precedes Chavez's megalomania, regardless, it is worth seeing from below. Horrific. But, then, appropriate that the stellar museum of Modern Art is located within and underneath some of the worst modern architecture ever.
