This museum has rotating exhibitions across three levels. It’s quite small and the entry fee is only 120 pesos. There’s a cafe and a small bookshop too. Very light bright modern space. Worth a visit, though check the current exhibitions if you’re picky.

Always has interesting temporary exhibits and the best curation in the city. I live here and I go every couple of months to see their new shows.

Outstanding Miro exhibit as of Jan 2018. Other exhibits offer useful social and historical context for starting to understand South American art as distinct from European traditions.
