The Art of the Americas is an unassuming museum that showcases modern art from Latin American and Caribbean artists. The museum’s prized possession is a floor-to-ceiling room made completely out of blue tile and wood, inspired by Aztec and Inca motifs.

A small sculpture garden outside the museum includes a statue of Xochipili, the Aztec god of flowers.
