Crítica constructiva: Deberían hacer esta muestra los fines de semana también, o por lo menos en horario extendido más allá del horario de oficina. Estoy interesado en ir pero me choca con el horario de trabajo. Igual, si no se puede, podrían considerar trasaldar los documentos a algún museo que sí abra los fines de semana. Excelente iniciativa, que vengan más como esta, por favor.
