  • it's well lit, has a nice sector with plants, but it looks like a newly opened place that has nothing to see. entry is economical.

  • It was a surprise to find this place with this quality, professionalism, architectural charm... Preserving ancient structures, the modern design of the nave that houses three museums contains good taste, excellent signage and information, staff combined with history and with great kindness... We even came across a representation of the tunnels that according to oral traditions existed there. A huge surprise, made us greatly enjoy the trip to Santiago. If you go to this provincial capital, do not miss this place!! Museums of fine arts, archaeology and history, unmissable!!

  • If you're strolling around Santiago, it's one of the places to visit along with the cathedral (for its history) Old City building modified to be a modern museum, speaks a lot about native life and local artists, there are more attractions to see about things that differ , do not forget to visit the old tunnel located here. Accessible tickets ($), disabled children are not paid until a certain age. Equipped with very clean bathrooms, a coffee suitable for a stop with tables in the main room, you can see transit people because it connects 3 accesses. I hope you enjoy your luck.

  • Excellent place. Surrounded by history. The source is noisy but it's just a minor detail. Beautiful place.
