Beautiful building. Interesting exhibits. The dome is impressive. There was an interesting exhibit on women, feminists and the role of color in society. Quick visit.

The building itself is old and beautiful. It has some permanent exhibitions for art lovers. Right in the city centre, easily accessible and free to enter. Check it out.

We walked through the Parque Forestal gardens to The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and spent 90 minutes taking in the art and architecture of the museum. To be honest the paintings and sculptures are really secondary to the main feature. This is the vast...More

I went here because the main hall looked amazing in the photos and I love art deco buildings. The hall lived up to its promise. Fortunately they had removed the entrance fee (wisely) as it turned out there were almost no exhibitions. There were are...More
