  • The building is well worth It, also the neighborhood is quite pleasant to relax (beautiful cemetery is nearby)-the exhibitions at the time of my visit I found less interesting, even more unfortunate I find that only a small part of the building is accessible. Good for a one-time visit

  • We did the Expo on South America, we expected better (or at least a little more) especially in view of the advertising visible on social networks, newspapers, etc... The Expo was interesting, but if summary sum all in comparison to what was advertised, we adored some facilities and did not have a whole adhered to half of what was exposed (beyond our personal perception that lacked explanations and thread in General unfortunately), we expected to discover much more. This says the place is very nice, well kept, the schedules are very open and accessible to all, disabled access not to deny, our downside is the comparison between the pub of the exhibition in question (the one quoted above, not necessarily a generality) and the reality of the "richness" of the Expo on the spot... Apart from that, beautiful place (very nice space etc) and interesting choice of books of any genre in bookshop on the spot.

  • The building is nice with a garden and nice plant near by, but that’s not what I paid for. Great pieces inside, however I spent more time in their book store reading the book about the exhibition I paid for cause it has way more content than the exhibition itself. meh.
  • Beautiful exhibition of Latin American artists involving geometric designs. Nice building architecture itself, with different layouts in the ground floor and in the basement. The lighting in art pieces is well placed, often creating stronger contrast on the piece. The garden behind the building is cozy, great to chill in the afternoon.
