Located alongside the Museo de Bellas Artes, the National Art Gallery opened as recently as 2009, after some ten troubled years of building work, and was certainly well worth the wait. This art museum holds a staggering collection numbering more than 7,000 pieces, spanning around 500 years. Inside you will discover that there is everything here from pre-Hispanic art to contemporary masterpieces. The new, nearly completed National Art Gallery was inaugurated by Hugo Chávez in 2009 and now stands as Venezuela’s physically largest museum. Construction on its nearly 31,000 sq meters originally began in 1989 but was abandoned in the mid-’90s. Architect Carlos Gómez de Llerena.
