“Beautifully presented”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

The actual art pieces are lovely if you like 17th century art. The best thing about the museum is every room is a different colour. It's a pretty ballsy move to put 17th century art in an orange room, but it works!

“Beautiful and free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We visited this museum when the rain drove us out of Recoleta cemetery, and we're glad we did. The collection of mostly Latin American artists was beautiful and interesting, my favorite was the elaborate Spanish combs. It's small, and worth the visit.

“Beautiful old museum, with a modest but nice collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

I love older art museums, and this place fits the bill perfectly. Its not terribly big, but has enough to keep you occupied for at least a few hours.

Enjoyed the layout and presentation of this museum. Some excellent works by Rodin as well as paintings in the impressionist school.
