  • is a museum as its name indicates, art history has sculptures of the prehistory and many of the Hellenistic period. I thought it was very beautiful, well worth a visit ... When I went to the entrance was free.

  • Well organized, it is in the basement of the City Council of Montevideo, you can visit at a time. The children are impressed by the Egyptian Mummy and sometimes itinerant exhibitions of art and/or handicrafts from interesting cultures of the region (Latin America) can be enjoyed. It has greatly improved in recent years.

  • Excellent replicas, and the best in the world. A museum story of very good level. You must traverse it every now and then.

  • Well worth a visit. This is full of statues and artwork of ancient Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia and pre-colonial central/south America. It is one of the only places open on a Sunday in the city.
  • If you are an art lover, you are going to enjoy savouring the exhibition. Even if you are not highly interested in art, you still can broaden your views.
  • Nice museum. Needs restoration but it is OK. Opens after lunch. You can take the kids
  • A very wide range of art museum. They have a lot of different kind, ages and styles of art. So if you enjoy history of art save a good time for this one.
  • Very nice Museum
