This is an excellent museum of contemporary art. At the moment of writing this, the Liliana Porter exhibition is especially good. They also have a kind of meta-exhibition about their collection - great stuff!

The museum has a very nice and modern building. The lobby has a big aerial sphere made of plastic bottles. I was in a conference in the auditorium and the meeting rooms are comfortable.

The museum has three large chambers that house temporary exhibitions and a few permanent items. It is not as pompous and overbearing as Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, but even has some "backwater" feel to it, especially if you visit during the workdays.
