Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santiago

(3.5/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • It is free, and it runs quite fast. Forest Park leads to this Museum for what it is worth passing. The works are very beautiful. It is connected by a door to the Museum of contemporary art.
