So this is the national Museo of Fine Art for Santiago. The building is lovely and is linked to a second Museo, the contemporary Art museum. I visited every gallery in both museums and was completely underwhelmed by the art. There were some special exhibits...More

Definitely worth a visit and depending on the actual exhibits the experience may wary. Free admission but you should make a small donation. Compared to the equivalent museums in both Buenos Aires and Montevideo this one is trailing a bit, still well worth the visit.

Okay so this is not the Met, but is a small and interesting collection (particularly the second floor) which is a nice ramble. Particularly the Chilean art. The fact that it is free is a definite bonus, and worth an hour. Very nice building. You...More

The special exhibit of statuary when we visited was pretty sad, but the other collections were decent. It's small and free, plus connects through to the MAC. Worth a visit

Even if this is not a huge museum and even if this doesn't have a lot of art, the architecture of this place is amazing and every week there is a different exhibitions.

Beautiful building with art expos. You have to visit It if you come to Santiago. You have metro and bus stations very close, so you can walk there and It is a safe zone, as It is not still in the center of the city.

Only worth a visit if in the area. Do not make a special trip. The building itself is more impressive than its content. Tours4Tips meets in front of this building for one of their tours. The Museo de Artes Visuales, which is not too far...More

Beautiful building/museum. A must visit and admission is free. The dome ceiling was a gift from Belgium and the architectural style is very European. I was lucky to stumble upon an exhibit from Matta, which was one of my favorite painters and there was a...More

The building itself is very much worth visiting. Actually there are two museums inside, you can walk from one on to number two. The collection was of little interest to me, but the building is beautiful
