To be honest, all of Valparaíso is an open air museum! Unless you are going to Pablo Neruda’s house which is in this area, it is not worth your while going out of your way to visit this attraction. The street art in this “museum”...More

You need to up and down lots of stairways to see differents and beautiful graffitis! It's important to bring water and a map... I went there alone and it was safe. I walked quietly through the alleyways. Really recommended place!

There is a lot of beautiful & thought-provoking street art in Valparaiso - go on one of the Free Tours (from Plaza Anibal Pinto or Plaza Sotomayer - 10am & 3pm daily) and you will see, and have explained, lots of great paintings and examples...More

Sometimes public art is dubbed a museum without walls. In this case the art is painted on the walls...murals, dozens of then. Many of this eclectic mix of styles and subjects, are beautiful or incredibly detailed or both.

I am a street art aficionado.And from what I had read about the Museo a Cielo Abierto, i expected much more.Actually, Valparaiso itself deserves this name, not this area in particuilar.And so it's a waste of time. Go to Cerro Polanco instead, ( supposedly a...More

We went in april to Valparaiso and we walked as much as we could. We found this museum, which I found very interesting and enjoyable. It matches perfectly with the entire bohemian atmosphere of this city. Not to be missed!

Not worth it. The "professional" murals are not as good as many other amateur ones in the city, and there is graffiti all over it (like actual graffiti/rude words/tagging, etc). The only thing that makes it a museum are the tags with the artists name...More

Portenos, Valparaiso is a busy port city, paint TREMENDOUS murals on outdoor building walls. The concept of viewing a group of them in order, for free, I their actual neighborhood is SO egalitarian. Finding an entrance, eventually we found three, was a challenge. More difficult...More
