Today we started our day by visiting two museums that are very close to our apartment: the Fine Arts Museum and the Contemporary Arts Museum. In terms of National Museums, these are small but very beautiful neo-classical buildings. They are located in the long riverside Parque Forrestal. Their internal exhibition space is limited to less than a dozen rooms, but their entranceways and foyers are vast and open to dome-ceilings and quite dramatic. The actual exhibitions, however, were a bit of a disappointment. Neither of the museums seems to have much of a ‘permanent’ collection. The Fine Arts museum exhibition was titled: A Lyrical Quality of Lasting Charm: American and Chilean Painting at the Centenary of Chile, 1910. It contained a few interesting paintings but nothing remarkable. Just walking around the building, however, was worth the small admission price.
