We especially enjoyed the mural in the entry. The art museum is quite easy to visit with interesting exhibits that seem to be contemporary. Doesn't take a lot of time to wander through the 2 floors to enjoy Chilean art at it's finest. The only...More

Honestly, the rest of the museum was probably a 3 or 4 star worthy event, but the mural in the main room is remarkable and truly worth a visit all by itself.

Here's a good variety of exhibitions and an especially interesting one of 90's figurative painters. At least one surprising idea! Upstairs portraits include Marcial Plaza Ferrand whose specialty was beautiful women -- a treat for guys. Entrance dominated by leftist themes in a mural donated...More
