Museum isn't that large - they have few floor each having small area. Visit is free though and on the top there is as well a relaxation area to rest your feet for a moment. Worth visit if being nearby.

Modern gallery built onto a front of an old building. It has a strange lay out with lots of rooms with hardly anything in there. Walkways across open space and a big space right up the middle of the building. Go if it's raining otherwise...More

The CAAM is a fantastic building which is definitely worth a visit. The photos from Cuba is not really worth the time. I always wonder why ugly is more art than beauty. I prefer beauty
