Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santiago
(3.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate exquisite paintings in a spectacular setting at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, the oldest institution of its kind in South America. Established in 1880, the museum moved to its current location, the Palace of Fine Arts, in 1910. Admire the ornate architecture of the colonial-style building as you move through the collection, which houses pieces by renowned Chilean artists like Luis Vargas Rosas and Roberto Matta. You might expect more pieces to fill the large building, which can seem somewhat empty. Despite this, the free museum undoubtedly warrants a visit. Plan your visit to Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Santiago family vacation planner.

  • I could see an exhibition "in key male" beautifully conceived to rethink art and masculinity in it. The bad: I had to return vaaarias times because they always were unemployed. The good: Yes or Yes attending on weekends, with tourists in mind.

  • The architecture is amazing. It has beautiful carvings and when we went there was a very interesting exhibition. The cloakroom is triggered by the visitor who introduces a coin and this is returned when you remove your bag at the end of the visit. Wi fi very good.

  • 喜歡當代美術的遊客可以來看看,美術館雖然是國力的但本身規模不是那麼大,裡面的裝潢卻很有感覺,建築本身非常雄偉,免費的,加減看一下。
