  • As ever, I always find exhibits to entertain me in modern art museums and this didn't disappoint. The entrance fee is very cheap $1000 CP, and the exhibitions are a combination of video art, paintings and sculptures. One item that caught my eye was the grand piano on spiders legs!!! The exhibitions are on split levels, on the top level is a darkened room with more interesting video presentations.
  • It cost me 1000 pesos to get in today. Note cash only they do not take cards. I went yesterday with no cash and could not get in. On the lower ground floor they have one exhibition of simulated waves and other patterns accompanied by noise possibly an earthquake? This is also visible from the ground floor where there is a "chronometer". I did not get this at all you walk through a tunnel built of crushed plastic bottles in gabions and the floor is mirrored glass. At the end of the tunnel there is a digital date then you have to walk back the same route which is very difficult if there are people coming the other way. There are a few exhibits on the upper floor.
