We had about 3 hours to kill before departing SCL for the US; we walked to the National Museum of Beaux Arts and were pleasantly surprised to learn of free admission on Sundays! We spent all of our time exploring individual galleries and particularly enjoyed...More

The building in itself is impressive, and the marbles downstairs are fascinating, but the real deal is upstairs in the exhibits of the natural good, individual good and community good. A history is traced, through art and artists, and it's a great job. Inspires.

We walked through the Parque Forestal gardens to The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and spent 90 minutes taking in the art and architecture of the museum. To be honest the paintings and sculptures are really secondary to the main feature. This is the vast...More

Architecture lovely. Touring galleries not the complete art museum experience for anyone who doesn't speak Spanish. Text describing exhibits, history of paintings etc all in Spanish. There are no multi-language tours available that we could find. I personally prefer information from the curator and some...More

This is a free museum in a French Baroque building built for the 100 year centennial of Chile. The exhibition was political about violence. The space is classical and deserves a visit.

The architecture is kind of interesting , especially the glass ceiling , but this museum , which bills itself as "el museo de todos " ( the museum of everything ) should really be called "el museo de nada" ( the museum of nothing) because...More
