  • Parra is a historical figure in Chile, but mostly for her unorthodox life and early death. Her art doesn't seem quite as well known. The Parra weavings in this museum are the most impressive of her cr...  more »
  • The Museum is easy to place and free entry. Is unique to the history of Violeta Parra (that's well worth knowing). Is good because there is a teaching video on entry telling a little about your history, and at the end, tree trunks with Violet discs that to embrace them you can listen to your songs. Very beautiful!

  • I like how the museum is presented, very interesting the way the audios are displayed. Very attractive to sight. The small garden is espectacular
  • it is a fantastic not to be missed museum in Santiago with the incredible art embroideries of Violeta on display. No wonder that they were on display at the Louvre!
  • 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!
