We stopped in here for a moment in our short visit to the Old Town. Only a few galleries were open, but the art was great. I actually took the time to observe the work - they were beautiful. There was an open exhibition area with large photographs of cultural events from the present day and the past - it was amazing. Take the stairs all the way to the roof for a nice view of the plaza down below and the church across the street.

This museum houses a large collection of artwork on two levels, plus a courtyard with visiting exhibits (photography both times I've been here, and exceptional!). There are also small performance spaces that host free concerts and events. Can't beat that! Stop by on a Sunday afternoon, when the streets outside are closed to traffic and filled with musicians, dancers and artists.

Clean bathrooms are available here, too.

When we went the entire upper gallery was closed but you could still enjoy the roof top terrace.
The art work was interesting, many temporary displays that were very unique.
It was free and not far from the basilica, or a $2 cab ride from around Mariscal Foch.

Seems that this place used to be an University and also the place for the Jesuits back in the day. Place serves as a place for exhibitions now. It's in the back of the Government Palace.
