Another great place to visit during Mérida en Domingo!!! It was free when we visited. It is educational and entertaining. It is handicap accessible. It is a great quiet place for couples and families. I would recommend this place for everyone!!!

Spent a delightful couple of hours roaming this fabulous museum. Fernando Garcia Ponce's work is truly inspiring. I got lost in the three galleries displaying his work from the 1960's--1980's. Nice courtyard to relax, cool off and have a Coke.

You can always find interesting exhibits here...some I've seen I wouldn't have paid a dime for, others were remarkable. However, there is no elevator and the exhibits are up two long flights of stairs. It is free however and therefore worth the climb.

An interesting, free, modern art gallery in a fascinating convent building in the heart of Merida. Well worth your time for either a short or long visit. There are both permanent galleries and changing displays.

Next to the Cathedral, air conditioned. Doesn't take much time. Artist from around the world. Not a must see for me but very well appointed.

Rather limited installations with a couple of standing artists and some revolving exhibits. The layout is a bit odd because the museum is in two stories of possiblly two (now connected) mansions. Signage was not great. But there is A/C in some of the rooms!!

This was such a nice museum! The art is very extraordinary and that's what makes it so special. Also, the entrance is free!
