  • I know this place as a child. All my life my parents took me to visit these beautiful spaces that exhibit cultural expansion in our country. I met an infinite number of national and international artists who stimulated creativity in my existence. Lately I feel that policy also surrounds these spaces inside, but still kept the structure, which already this year celebrates 100 years of established. If you want to surround with art, this is the right place. Venezuelans are fortunate to enjoy architectural wonders like this Museum and contemporary art. Go over and over again because the art enriches the mind of man.

  • Excellent. It has improved a lot, I guess that the Directorate of culture is doing its job better. Let us hope that the remodeling of the neoclassical headquarters is pretty good.

  • Excellent environment for contemplation of art in the Museum of fine arts of Caracas, a good air conditioning, facilities clean, well lit, rooms very well maintained and quiet that the University Library; but the magic is not even up to a ceiling of artistic cutting features, but that the rooms have large windows which give view to the Los Caobos Park and the symbiosis named really "happy, motivates and satisfies the spirit"... (We need more experiences as well...). This is its permanent headquarters and at some point in the past stood in the Capitol (Colonial town of the Capital District) sector, being on February 20, 1938, when President Eleazar López Contreras opened this office, which was designed by the architect Carlos Raúl Villanueva that initially it was a building of neo-classical style of a plant with portico, columns and central pool. (The facade seen from the Museum square). Already for 1976 opens expansion project designed by the same architect Villanueva, consisting of five floors connected by ramps, and large windows that connect to the Los Caobos Park, so the naturaleza-arquitectura integration is magnificent. Currently the Museum of fine arts has eighteen rooms, vaults for the conservation and protection of works, to a sculpture garden with access to an experimental room, terrace, shop and Cafe in its fresh gardens outdoor, where Apart from a juice or coffee or look at sculptures located to your around.

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.
