We decided to drop into this small, downstairs museum on Avenida Sol since it was included with the Tourist Ticket.

In a very limited time frame - una hora- I rushed down to the Contemporary Art Museum in the main square. Apparently, you need to have a City Pass to gain entrance. I tried to explain that I would pay, but clerk said " No."...More
