Art Museum of the Americas information
The Organization of American States operates this mini art museum in a separate building on its property. It features changing exhibits of paintings and photography that span the 20th century and the western hemisphere. It's well worth popping in, though you'll likely be the only one there walking across the creaky floors to examine the surprisingly political works.
