Visited today and saw a few great pieces and one or two interesting compositions. There were a few placards in English and most display pieces were translated in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Tuesday’s are free and the store had a few cute items.

While the views from the 6th floor are great - I found the exhibitions here to be disappointing. With very specific themes and very limited explanations in English - I got bored rather quickly.
