The building itself is very much worth visiting. Actually there are two museums inside, you can walk from one on to number two. The collection was of little interest to me, but the building is beautiful

The architecture of the building was more attractive to me than an exhibition. The roof made of glass, wooden second floor, colorful walls: different color in every hall. Good option for a cold rainy day. The best thing about this Museum - it's a free...More

I love spending time at museums, and the Fine Arts Museum at Santiago really impressed me. The architecture, how well maintained it is, how attentive the staff is, and the fact that it gives free access to students (with your student ID) is amazing. Although...More

Pretty okey museum with nice art though it left us saying “is that it?” - not a lot to see. They have a lot of unused area. The things that are there are nice though :) but it’s free so that’s nice!

We visited here on a Tuesday morning, and the place was pretty empty apart from a school trip. There’s not a great deal to view, a couple of temporary exhibitions, and some copies of sculptures from around the world. It was free though, and the...More

As many of the other reviews noted, the building is perhaps the main attraction, with the art inside being only secondary. It’s not a huge collection, and, as with all contemporary art, it really depends what is on display at the moment. But a wonderful...More

The museum itself is interesting, but it doesn’t have a lot. The beautiful building itself is more interesting. Stroll around and look up. The wrought iron work is very lovely, 19th century I believe. It’s across a lovely park that is perfect for strolling. Just...More

I found this museum "right sized" and visitor friendly. I was admiring the museum building itself rather than its art collection.
