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.
