  • Design, architecture and cultural space is fantastic, however the artistic exhibition of the artist is poor, and calls the attention the little material that possesses.

  • It is exciting to see the originals of the works of Violeta Parra and the clarity of ideas I had about life, despite having had a childhood so Ponte and difficult, which is proof of the recirculation that benefit her, and that left it the day of his suicide

  • This new museum is artfully designed and well appointed. Entrance is free and the location near Plaza Baquedano couldn't be more central. There is a good deal here about the life and work of Violeta P...  more »

  • For somebody that had a huge influence on Chile there was only a small selection of work and artefacts on display. However as a visitor to Chile, who had only heard a few things about her previously, it was an interesting visit. Please note to non spanish speakers, I'm not sure if it has changed since, but when I visited shortly after it opened there weren't many descriptions of works in English or other languages compared to some museums. Luckily I speak enough spanish to understand what was described. Worth a visit though, I am glad i went. Centrally located and free.
  • Fantastic architecture in itself that wonderfully complements Parra's work. Enchanting artistic style. And, to top it all, free (voluntary contribution) and a peaceful cafe with a great terrace.
  • Pretty much an empty building with a couple of rooms of some knitting and pictures. I was like "¿that's it?". At least it was free enterance, or I would have been über angry.
  • Within a beautiful building, the Museum has a very small fraction of the work of the artist, more focused on his work as a painter and embroiderer to his work as music. I missed see and hear much more of his musical legacy. Also it seems to me that the Museum is not the most important aspect of violet: his personality and feelings. Little or nothing is seen on his soul tortuosa (ignoring his works) from the biographical perspective. That seems to me a key aspect to understand his work. However, the Museum has potential, provided the Foundation in charge make him to improve it.
