This museo is an excellent and free worthwhile trip. The size is perfect. You can spend 1-2 hours in there, see the entire space and all the exhibits. You'll leave feeling inspired and renewed. I found that after this first day of exploration the remaining...More

We visited here on a Tuesday morning, and the place was pretty empty apart from a school trip. There’s not a great deal to view, a couple of temporary exhibitions, and some copies of sculptures from around the world. It was free though, and the...More

As many of the other reviews noted, the building is perhaps the main attraction, with the art inside being only secondary. It’s not a huge collection, and, as with all contemporary art, it really depends what is on display at the moment. But a wonderful...More

The museum itself is interesting, but it doesn’t have a lot. The beautiful building itself is more interesting. Stroll around and look up. The wrought iron work is very lovely, 19th century I believe. It’s across a lovely park that is perfect for strolling. Just...More

I found this museum "right sized" and visitor friendly. I was admiring the museum building itself rather than its art collection.

The outside is wonderful Belle Epoque architecture, and we would have loved to see inside as well as the collection. But, it was mysteriously closed for three days. The guard at the door could give no explanation, only a shrug.

The Museum was established in 1880, making it the oldest in South America, and moved into the current purpose built building in 1910. The current building is a mix of architectures with the internal layout and the stone façade modelled on the Pettit Palais of...More

With all of the street murals I thought that the art in the museum would be quite illustrious. Not so, except for the sculptures, which were moderately impressive. The paintings were far less than impressive, not nearly as captivating as the street artists. The museum...More
