  • Actually it is a place full of culture... super cute, clean and in general is a good Museum... but can for the people who have so many lucas, since for many of the exhibits were required to pay then soo you can go to a couple of places reducing by 50% your visit... can improve...

  • Looking at it from the horizon of the streets that surround it, it cost to imagine the great cultural space that develops inside. To visit him, surprising the minimalist line of its architecture, almost as an emulation of Latin American modern architectures, in particular, reminds the public spaces of Brasília. That is why, the exhibitions that I've frequented, stand out among these simple but powerful design lines. This Center has been transformed into an encounter with the culture of the everyday Chile, of the common citizen, without aspirations of prominence, but that attracts him and enjoy mounts of first level there have been presented. The foregoing, joins the presence of traditional as coffee towers, and to the exhibition halls of the deep Chile, that of our estate where we can recognize ourselves as part of this land, and consider ourselves protagonists of their future. A great idea of statesman who surpass his inspiring at the time. His visit inspired to think, and why not yell a! Viva Chile!

  • Nice itinerary exhibitions. It's really a nice place... until you gotta pee. The bathrooms could use some work, there are really-really small
  • Loved Warhol exhibition, everything is neat, small shops for souvenirs and i was not so overwhelmed with prices, as you would expect. Recommended
  • I love the atmosphere and all that I'm learning. It's beautiful and interactive and a must do trip
  • 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
  • Excellent museum, it doesn't have a permanent exhibit, it vary from time to time, you can discover new things. Good cafeteria.
