This museo is an excellent and free worthwhile trip. The size is perfect. You can spend 1-2 hours in there, see the entire space and all the exhibits. You'll leave feeling inspired and renewed. I found that after this first day of exploration the remaining 2 weeks were sprinkled with art that was first viewed in this museum. Particularly speaking the Pu Mapuche from Luis Sergio was mysteriously and enthusiastically telling of what was to come on our journey. Definitely, go see this museum. As well, I recommend taking a bottle of white wine with you and a blank, some cheese, and crackers and sit under a palm tree after your visit to discuss the beauty you just took in. Who knows maybe you'll be blessed with some live music as we were.

We visited here on a Tuesday morning, and the place was pretty empty apart from a school trip.
There’s not a great deal to view, a couple of temporary exhibitions, and some copies of sculptures from around the world.
It was free though, and the building is pretty impressive.

As many of the other reviews noted, the building is perhaps the main attraction, with the art inside being only secondary. It’s not a huge collection, and, as with all contemporary art, it really depends what is on display at the moment. But a wonderful place to spend an hour wandering around and enjoying both the art and the building.

The museum itself is interesting, but it doesn’t have a lot. The beautiful building itself is more interesting. Stroll around and look up. The wrought iron work is very lovely, 19th century I believe. It’s across a lovely park that is perfect for strolling. Just walk around and then meander into one of the adjacent streets.

I found this museum "right sized" and visitor friendly. I was admiring the museum building itself rather than its art collection.
