  • Nice decoration, however is a little monotonous. The regular Cafe. It is OK to go once to know him.

  • A small and beautiful building. The permanent collection, however, is frugal. Exhibits their Burlap, works of paper mache and its history in music, there are instruments and little memorabilia highlighting the manuscript of the classic Latin American "Gracias a la Vida". It is best to visit it if there is an extra special activity.

  • 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

  • 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.
