  • I was somewhat familiar with Violeta Parra's music, especially her best known song, "Gracias a la Vida," sung by Joan Baez and others. But I had no idea about her visual artworks. This museum shows mu...  more »
  • Violeta Parra was a maximum artistic personality, exemplary in the history of Latin American culture. Folklorist, singer, dancer, painter and Weaver, has its personality and trajectory very well presented in this museum. The architecture is very contemporary, and the Museography, perfect. It has educational sector, video room, galleries, small shop and a good auditorium. It is a fundamental visit to understand Chile and America, and to admire the work of a singular personality.

  • Very nice museum. I had not heard about Violeta Parra before, but I was definitely surprised with such amazing arts made by a multi artist. Admission is free, which is a plus! Definitely worth the visit if you are in the surrounding area.
  • Interesting. Especially as she only painted for the seven to eight years before her death.
  • Excellent choice to learn some chilean culture
  • I loved this museum! Has texts in English (and mapuche!) which isn't that common in Chile (mostly just in Spanish). It is free and that atmosphere is very welcoming and calm. Also good for children.
  • Excellent museum. It's very ordered.
