  • When visiting the Chilean Government Palace, La Moneda, it is possible to visit the cultural Center that is installed beneath the square. The Centre presents exhibitions and souvenir shops, as well as a good coffee. Find out about the exhibitions because there are periods of free admission! I liked.

  • Excellent to visit with the children. Between 9:00 hrs and 12:00 hrs, it is free. Samples are world class and the facilities comply with everything you need: bathrooms, rooms airconditioned, wardrobe. Is must let them backpacks and bottles of water in wardrobe and the photos to the inside of them rooms are without flash. Interactive rooms for children are a must even for large.
