MAC, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Santiago
(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
In an effort to welcome and preserve diverse cultural trends and promote ongoing discussion and reflection in all areas of human knowledge, MAC, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo boasts a collection of over 2,500 items of modern and contemporary art. The museum strives to narrow the gap between the public and new artistic impression with its collection of prints, paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Two separate buildings divide the museum--a neoclassical building from 1910 and an early 20th-century French-style building, dubbed 'Versailles Palace.'

  • Simply wonderful here you can see contemporary pictures of Catholic University students that blend ancient works also with those same, as well as murals and a huge menu that shows the past of Chile and every stage of the country have to visit it! It is open every day of the year less Sundays

  • Visiting the Museum of fine arts, we have a hallway linking a surprisingly modern sample, we think that it was the same building, then place staff clarified we were two museums in one, which had United to enhance the samples and that visits. We really liked much, we enjoy carefully with the children and the building is very cute, very well preserved and maintained. Really advisable, there are clear signs colliding for adults a little, but you have to understand that it is a Museum of modern art with a look more wide of the arts in general and of the world.

  • A very good Museum, fairly complete and educational. Recommended for who is walking through the forest park.

  • Beautiful building. Not too much art, but had a few really nice pieces.
  • Awesome sculptures. Everything else was so-so.
  • Very good David la Chapelle exhibition. The place is very beautiful and clean, but somehow they managed to get the lightning of the rooms all wrong.
  • as it says in spanish below, this is shown in the wrong place on google maps. it is not in providencia, but in central santiago (near the bellas artes metro station!). it's a nice musem - not really "world class" (doesn't have much by famous dead european guys - but if you're looking for famous international, modern work try museo de la solidaridad), but a beautiful building, some good chilean work (a storming mata) and a good selection of exhibitions (the little shop and cafe are ok too). round the back, the MAC (comptemporary art) is more variable - sometimes pretty bad, but sometimes awesome.
