I really like this museum, because you can see a lot of paintings and sculptures from our country, by Rebecca Matte for example, which are my favourite. I'd recommend it on a Sunday afternoon, when it's not very crowded or too empty.

This is a nice museum, especially for those who enjoy sculptures. I walked there from downtown and the walk which you can after your visit extend next to the river was pleasant. I enjoyed the content of the museum, but being a bit of an architecture fan, what I enjoyed the most was the building!

This is a nice little museum. It is only 600 pesos (cheap!) and it's a lovely building. The exhibits are nice although there aren't many. You get a good feel for Chile's art history however and it's nice and quiet inside. I enjoyed the time I spent there. I got through it in a little over an hour and I saw everything. They have a nice little gift shop in the front.

As most of the museums of the world Bellas Artes is closed on Monay. Bellas Artes is an museum that is arranged to get classic education. You see the development of art in Chile also you can admire pictures of European artists.

This 20th. century building inspired by French architecture has a beautiful glass domed ceiling that lights up the interior and the works in it. It has a permanent exhibit of the best Chilean art and it usually has good temporary exhibitions of both Chilean and international artists. The Museum shop is a must and it has a nice coffee shop. The entire neighborhood houses Santiago's bohemian quarter with nice bookstores and little restaurants that you must seek out (in daylight).
