A small gallery in the Amón district showcases emerging talent at affordable prices
A bellweather art gallery of Costa Rican up-and-comers
Although not a museum per se, the petite Galería Andrómeda is arguably one of the capital's must-vists for art-lovers. Located at the edge of the Amón district (Calle 9 at Avenida 9), since 1986 it's specialised in promoting up-and-coming local artists, especially painters, with both figurative and abstract works represented; there are numerous exhibitions of both Costa Rican and international (especially Latin American) artists. Entry is free of charge, the prices are surprisingly affordable, and there's also a painting workshop and selection of books (a good number of them put out by the gallery itself) and literary magazines.
