Take a hour to visit this museum. It is a big building that is under utilized. It does, however, house some interesting works by Uruguayan artists, so that provides a glimpse of the culture, albeit a limited, poorly displayed glimpse.

“Very interesting permanent collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Located in the Parque Rodó and with enormous windows that allow visitors to integrate the museum experience with the park outside, the MNAV has a very interesting permanent collection as well a temporary exhibitions. Carlota Ferreira, some of Blanes' gaucho's, paintings by Carlos Federico Saenz, Cúneo, Petrona Viera. Absolute must-see for Uruguayan art. (to be supplemented by a visit to Museo Blanes).
