  • It is an underground cultural space located below the Palacio de la Moneda. You can freely enter free of charge to see your samples every day before 1 pm. It is very interesting and a visit must in downtown Santiago. Regalame your vote

  • The exposed material is beautiful. We had the opportunity to know the art of the Mapuche people, the residents of the island of Chloè ... beautiful! There was also a small exhibition about the graphic art, beautiful and with curious details. There was still in the lower floors, cinema room and space for temporary exhibitions (was being disassembled a on Rome. We were unable to visit). But most of the space is occupied by shops that sell handicrafts and coffee shops (3, huge!). All very clean and organized. But I would have found more art and culture.

  • We love the place, but I found a little troubled place, probably because of the day that we were, there was exposure and a fair very interesting archaeological, I recommend if you have time to spare.

  • Amazing show. Got to see Vatican collection. Well-organized and free until mid of the day.
  • I love the exhibitions in here, every month/ two months are different samples for free until mid-day! Also a cinema, cafe, souvenir shops and workshops!
  • Nice itinerary exhibitions. It's really a nice place... until you gotta pee. The bathrooms could use some work, there are really-really small
  • Always something good to see, is free on the morning, and you have a lot of other touristic attraction near there
  • Very nice. Well kept. Nice expositions. There are free hours so if your budget is low is a good option to go before 1:00pm. Access buy bus, subway, or car. Place in the historic part of Santiago you can go to more places around to eat or get some cultural experience
