  • The architecture of the building is monumental. Be meeting together with the National Library and in front of Cerro Santa Lucía. Free entrance.

  • A stately building that also houses a great national library. On the day we went, unfortunately there was no documentary exhibition in theaters, but we did good attendances at industry officer informed us that there are always exhibitions of military dictatorship-era documents among other important documents preserved and exposed for disclosure of local history.

  • Don't we, by the way wasn't open to tourists so only photographed on the outside. We did a walk around to where we were staying and this was one of the attractions that we saw.

  • An excellent resource for anyone interested in historical documents of Chile. The team is very knowledgeable and friendly, and the collection of documents is vastisimo, both in quality and quantity. The catalogues are very extensive and documents are available publicly both in their original media (papers) as in microfiche. I only regret that very little (or nothing, in my case) was available in digital media.

  • A well imposing building. I visited it in the framework of the celebrations of the Chilean heritage, I liked much being surrounded by so much history.
