A nice building inspired by the Petit Palace in Paris, located right in the Paris. It is right in the middle of the Parque Forestal. I would not define it as a museum. There is very little to see inside but one can spend a...More

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.

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

Pretty okey museum with nice art though it left us saying “is that it?” - not a lot to see. They have a lot of unused area. The things that are there are nice though :) but it’s free so that’s nice!
