This place is a trip. The artwork is billed as surrealist, and includes a number of works by Salvador Dali, but the collection is mostly notable for being big and (visually) loud. The sculpture courtyard features too many bronzes for the space, and the paintings in the galleries lack any sort of subtlety. But the free museum ostensibly features Latin American artworks that "grabbed" the owners, and you can see how they did that. I did get a kick out of a series by a Brazilian artist who peopled paintings of circus folk with characters resembling Frida Kahlo self-portraits, but that was the cleverest thing I saw.

If you have an hour or so to kill and are rained in or burned out on the natural beauty of this part of Uruguay, this might be a good spot to see something completely different.

My wife and I had the opportunity to visit the Ralli Museum on a rainy afternoon in January 2014. It was a great way to spend an hour-or-so enjoying paintings and sculpture primarily by Latin American artists, although some European artists are also represented. The facility is situated in a park-like setting in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Punta del Este. Although it isn't large, it appears quite spacious with high ceilings and open courtyards for the display of sculptures. Entrance is free and unless one is really "into" a particular artist, a visit need not be longer than an hour or so. I would recommend the Ralli Museum to those with an interest in contemporary art - others might not be pleased.

If you want to see a great collection of Dali sculpture, make sure to visit the Ralli. There are paintings by South American artists as well, but the sculpture stole the show for me!

I was greatly suprised by this museum. I took pics with three cameras and did not schedule enough time to take a good hard look at everything. If you are into this type of art I cannot recommend this museum any higher.
