Museum patrimony is of about 1,500 works,
all created between the decades of the 50s
and 80s. They are shown by way of rotation,
according to the Museum's calendar for transitory
exhibitions. Seeing them helps to understand
what may have happened on this artist's
environments, especially during the 60s.
The collection includes different art periods,
such as Spanish informalism, that is rarely
represented on other Chilean Museums.
The building it now occupies was given by
the City of Santiago. It is a National Monument
built between the years 1884 and 1886 to
hold a School for Girls. The patio and halls
of this beautiful house, restored thanks
to money given by Spanish organizations,
give the necessary calm to stay away from
Santiago's downtown noise.
