The art in the building was actually very respectable. I'm glad I got to see it.

It is just the building itself that is bleak. That's something that can be fixed even with some paint.

Be sure to check the lower level for a special exhibit. The one going when I was here was quite interesting -- a Chilean artist who had died young from drinking water in the Mississippi River! (Yikes.)

While not the best art museum I've been to in South America, Museo Bellas Artes offers an investing afternoon nevertheless. Ask for a tour (English and Spanish) to fully appreciate the museum and its exhibitions. Entrance is free on Sundays.

It's in nice building, but the museum does not have interesting art. I'd recommend skipping it unless there's a special exhibit of interest to you.

The normal full-fare price is 600 pesos, or about US$1.50.

We took our family there last Sunday. After giving a donation (which is all they ask on Sundays) we enjoyed walking around for a little over an hour. The main gallery has a whimsical and interesting installation piece featuring hundreds of shirts linked together of all colors of the rainbow. (as of May, 2013). The Valparaíso exibit was awesome. It really offered a true taste of the hustle, bustle, dirt, dogs, poop, markets, views, stairs, ascensors, and general beautiful chaos that is the Valpo we love so much! A great place to visit for sure!

Museo Nacional de Bellas Arts trylly represents Chilie and it's people. it has some superb collection of old and new, including visiting exhibition. We were lucky to witness Kaarina Kaikkonen's exhibition titled Two Projects - Traces and Dialogues (Dos Proyectos - Huellas y Dialogos). Please see attached pictures from this monumental exhibition and from the museums permanent exhibition.

The museum is free and we had a good afternoon here, then good walk with children in the park opposite.
