Palacio de Bellas Artes

Aperto dal martedì alla domenica dalle 10:00 alle 18:50
Parque Forestal s/n Casilla 3209, Santiago de Chile

The basics

The permanent collection, displayed in the Palacio's soaring chambers, begins with the Spanish Colonial era and traces Chile's cultural development through the styles of its artistic masters. Temporary exhibitions come from around Chile and the world. The MAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo), Santiago's contemporary art museum, is also here. While this institution, operated by the University of Chile, may lack the gravitas of the neighboring Fine Arts Museum, exhibits can be a lot more fun. Guided city tours of Santiago may include a visit to the museum. The hop-on, hop-off buses, known as Turistik, also include a stop at Bellas Artes. Guided tours of the museum can be arranged in advance for groups of at least five people.

How to get there

The Palacio de Bellas Artes is located on the northern edge of the historic district, five blocks from the Plaza de Armas, close to the river.

When to get there

Overall, the best time to visit Santiago is during its shoulder seasons, from late September to November and from March to May, since the weather is still sunny then but the crowds are smaller. You’ll encounter the most tourists during summer in the southern hemisphere, which is from November to April. Cooler temperatures and showers are more common from May to September, but the museum is a good activity on a cold, rainy day.

Metropolitan Cathedral

In addition to the Palacio, architecture lovers will also want to visit Santiago's Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), which overlooks the Plaza de Armas. Inside this massive structure, you’ll find a richly adorned altar and ornate decoration, plus a small museum of religious artifacts. The cathedral remains an active place of worship, with masses on Sundays.
