Museo de Arte Alberto Henríquez


Situated diagonally opposite the Museo de Arte de Coro, in a great historic mansion, the Museo de Arte Alberto Henríquez has modern art – shows change regularly but are always worth a visit. At the back of the mansion is the first synagogue in Venezuela, (founded 1853) though the present furnishings are all replicas.
