    The best way to get to the Museum is on the subway, line 1 or 5, station Baquedano vicuña Mackenna West exit and walk 40 meters to the South. Admission is free and you agree to an exhibition of part of its multifaceted works. A must see is a room showcasing a video in French with subtitles in Spanish; impacts the spontaneity of his artistic genius, as violet shown on the journalist: "can't explain it you... I have it in my head and flows through my hands". The works are very well presented spacious shaped and with adequate lighting having as background and to an adequate level of sound, some of his musical compositions from his vast repertoire. It is a missing Museum to highlight as violet, his biography it deserves since it is an inseparable part of their development and genius of his work in a life story that wasn't easy. Recommend before visiting the Museum at least read what Wikipedia has compiled his biography, as also in this aspect, correct speech of a guide of the Museum since the rejection of weapons that violet exposed in one of his works (1962) not related any dictatorship (1973). A must see below of this visit is the La Hacienda restaurant to enjoy a tasty piece of meat to the embers

    It is what can be said of Violeta Parra that the visit to this Museum, managed by his family, is insufficient to address the magnitude of the work of this national creative. Stands free access but lack audiovisual and interactive material that helps to account for the legacy of the artist, especially to future generations.

    Very nice, much to see and touch... could have more things since the building is very broad. but is very beautiful and very nice things, ideal for travelling with children

    If you truly admired Violeta Parra, this is your place to go. Also if you wanted to learn more about a great Chilean artist, this is a great place to know Violeta. Singing trees, artwork and videos, make this museum really vivid.

    Nicely designed / decorated museum. Although not so many contents, gives a good overview of Violeta Parra's works. P.S. There's a lovely coffee shop with a few chairs in the green courtyard - must try.

    Cool museum about one of the most iconic Chileans in recent history. A very interesting place, with great architecture too!

    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.
