Better and better each year, Panama's only contemporary art museum near Cerro Ancón is worth a stop if you are in the area. The primary focus in the well-maintained, gallery-like space is a small group of Panamanian artists, both established and up-and-coming. Panamanian painter Brooke Alfaro is one such artist worth checking out. The museum also displays the work of artists from around Latin America, most of them are not widely known. The permanent collection is comprised of mostly watercolor and oil paintings. Surprisingly spacious, the institution acts much like a cultural center, with frequent events like film screenings and art classes for children, and rotating temporary exhibitions like a recent Japanese anime series. To explore the entire museum an hour or two should be allotted.
