The Ralli Museum in Punta del Este is the first of five Ralli museums operating in the world. With a building of more than 6.000 square meters, it boasts one of the most important collections of Latin American art in the world, as well as works by renowned European artists such as Salvador Dali, Amadeo Modigliani, and Rene Magritte.
"Pleasure is the purpose of art," said the famous French painter Nicolas Poussin. This concept fits the philosophy of the Ralli Museum, where visitors can see the works and visit exhibition halls, courtyards and gardens freely at their own pace.
The Ralli Museum is a must for those wanting to live the most significant art experience in Punta del Este, including permanent exhibitions of contemporary Latin American art, sculptures by European artists, special exhibitions and a multimedia room.
With the aim of presenting both the old and the modern, the museum offers a sample of classical art that includes pieces based on Greek mythology, with European creations from the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. These works brought from Europe and restored here by excellent artisans have been specially selected to highlight the contrast with the rest of the exhibits.
