The MAC is attached to the Bellas Arte museum and it is lovely. The light in the galleries is airy and the art is quite interesting. One reviewer mentioned that everything was in Spanish, yes, in this museum you will have to brush up on...More

Lots of rooms where they display nice contemporary art. Everything is in Spanish, so if you can’t read Spanish that might take away from the experience. Felt like they had a lot of unused space that they could use better but all and all it’s...More

Fabulous building and some good art to review. No charge to enter and well worth a visit. There is no coffee shop or souvenir shop which was a disappointment.

The museum is supposed to open during the week at 11 a.m. Was not open by 11:30! Located at back of Fine Art Museum.

The MAC is the other side of the fine arts museum and is definitely worth a look. I enjoyed it a lot more than the fine arts museum and thought that the curation was better. It is fairly small but I spent a nice hour...More

Free Entry The other side of the Museum of fine arts is this hidden gem. Beautiful room downstairs to start with Sculpture busts on the main floor surrounded with paintings mostly from the 1930's to 1940's. Overall a pretty impressive collection in my opinion which...More
