This is a small museum, which I like. Contemporary art is not for everyone, but I find it entertaining. We enjoyed the break, sitting on bean bags for about 15 minutes, in a big room, watching an arty film that made no sense to me....More

Contemporary art is hit-or-miss, so as with any gallery of this kind, it all depends on what is on display at the moment. But it’s an interesting, multi-level building, providing lots of variety in about 8 different rooms. Plus, there’s a small (one room) local...More

Oddities and an unusual floor arrangement make this museum a worthwhile visit. Plus, nice jewelry at the gift shop. Liked some of the art, not others. Don't forget the visual room, plays film to illustrate POV. I did learn something about current young Chilean artists.

We visited the museum after eating in the restaurant, the exhibitions are quite small and contemporary, however its still worth a visit. We ate at the restaurant twice as the service and food were very good.

The exhibition is quite small and you will not spend more than 1 hour. The art is exactly as it should be for this kind - in my opinion. It is provoking and visually strong. Highly recommended.

This is a small museum of contemporary art in Lastarria, on one of the nicest streets in the neighborhood. It is next door to Hotel Cumbres, down the street from Bocanariz, and around the corner from The Singular. The building is airy, attractive, interesting-- and...More

The museum is an interesting space but half was closed for a new exhibit. The works on display were interesting but some were difficult to understand.

To say this is the worst art museum I have ever been to would elevate it to the status of art museum, an undeserved appellation. Words I would choose to describe this flimsy excuse for a contemporary art museum are: shallow, vapid, amateurish, boring, juvenile,...More

This museum was located around the corner from our hotel. It displays a nice collection of modern art. Allow about an hour for the exhibit. Unfortunately, during our visit some of the rooms were closed for a new art installation. Would come back here.
