  • It is a beautiful Museum, exhibiting several textile pieces, oil paintings and collages. I would have liked that it was more about his music, but also have some vinyl sounding. It has a small shop where you can buy books and interesting records, but was closed when we went. Beautiful

  • The Museum is very close to the Metro station and it's beautiful baquedano. Has a video room and two exhibition with paintings and embroideries of Violeta Parra. Also has a very nice coffee! Admission is free, but they ask for a voluntary contribution of any amount.

  • The Museum shows an interview with the artist herself talking about the different jobs I did and also features tables of Violeta Parra-a pride of Chileans. The highlight is the handwritten paper composition of "Gracias a la vida", including deletions of the author. Quick tour and free entry. The visitor contributes to the value you want.

  • 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.
