Beautiful building and impressive collection
Jan. 2020
The mansion, in the Republica neighbourhod, was built by a Belgian businessman. It has since been the Spanish Embassy, part of the university of Chile, the centre for telephone surveillance during the dictatorship and now this museum. It is a beautiful setting for this collection.
Only a small part of the 2800 item collection is displayed. Many prominent South American artists and others have donated works. When we were there, the emphasis was on textile art. We spent a lovely hour there.

In this place we learn better the tragic history not only of Chile, but other Latin American countries during Cold War... it's a must visit place in Santiago!

Go for the solidaridad!

The venue is in a delightful area of old homes and university activity that a tourist would probably not visit except for the museum. The building is very nicely developed. The staff is friendly and helpful. I appreciated learning about this history of support from the international art community in solidarity with the movement for freedom. The documentation of the artists' donations is interesting. The website mentions a collection of 1300 works. However, from what we saw, the number displayed is only a small fraction. I had the impression that perhaps the exhibited works rotate, which is fine for locals, but disappointing for tourists. Only a few really exceptional works were on display when we visited.

Out of the way, but not to miss

This is a great little museum in a quiet neighborhood, filled with fascinating exhibitions around art and resistance in Allende's day. Would highly recommend for everyone with an interest in the intersection of art and politics. Only con is that most of the museum is in Spanish, so if you can't understand it might not be as impactful; however, I'm only basically functional in Spanish and was still able to enjoy the museum and appreciate its message. This museum was definitely one of the highlights of my Santiago trip.

I loved my time at the museum, like the TARDIS "it's was so big on the inside", inspiring, thought provoking, though there were a couple of displays, where I had to capitulate my Spanish simply wasn't good enough, the overall feeling was very good indeed

Excellent museum
Dec. 2016 • Family
This is a very surprising museum because has the most important exhibition of modern art in Chile. It is very interesting to learn about how this impressive amount of art work begun it's journey, it was an international initiate to support the President Allende idea of a new Chile. There are Miro, Calder, Stella among others art pieces.Is very children friendly, there are workshops and many different events around the year. If you go to Santiago, just visit them!

Great Contemporary Art Museum
Oct. 2016 • Couples
Highly recommend a visit to appreciate the contemporary art housed in a large mansion surrounded by University buildings. Free for seniors. Unfortunately, this museum is not very well known by locals. You can take the Metro to the Republica station and walk south a few blocks to the Museum. After the museum visit ate lunch at the 135 year old Cafe Torres at 1570 Alameda.

An Interesting Museum
May 2016 • Friends
It's a tiny museum with some really unique artwork. As the title speaks for itself, the artwork took place during the time period of Salvador Allende. There is a lot of history outlined in this museum alone. It's worth a visit if you have the time as it is off the beaten path of the typical tourist destinations in Chile. It's located on a beautiful street, so make sure to take a nice stroll either to or from it!

nice works but...
the museum building is beautiful and some of the works are really impressive (calder, miro...). unfortunately the museum is far away from other attractions, so it is quite a detour to get there. besides that the other works seems to be only relevant in historical and local terms.

An interesting small collection of works donated by Allende sympathizers dedicated to his memory. Exhibit space is limited. Pleasant location in a university area.
