If you think you don't like 20th-century art, visit this gallery. Cubism and expressionism, naive painting and socialist realism, they're all here, but reinterpreted with a Latin American flair by artists you haven't heard of, but will be glad to know. The building itself is historic, a colonial residence built around a patio that once served as the National University, and the garden is well-kept and the paintings well-displayed. Downstairs is an excellent exhibit of cave paintings from several places in the country where they have been found and are still being investigated.
Across the side street from the square in front of the museum is an Expresso Americano, if the coffee bar in the museum is closed - a good place to go with friends and chat about what you saw in the gallery. No guides, or audio-guides, but you won't need them, this museum in user-friendly and not too large to take in in a single visit.
