  • It's ok. Great to know about his life, although we found it a littler pricey (6 thousand pesos) for what it is (something you can see in less than 10 minutes). Plus a price like that makes culture and our history inaccessible for many and it shouldn't.
  • Very well put together with plenty of information and a nice atmosphere. The handheld tour is interesting and fun!
  • This is the prettiest of the Pablo Neruda houses, even if it has less stuff than the other homes. The audio tour is organized well floor-by-floor.
  • The electronic guided tour is essential and made the visit something to never forget. Neruda was a genius.
  • Be prepared to stand in line!!! Unlike La Chascona in Santiago, this one is crowded. At times it's hard to walk around the narrow hallways. Try to go in off peak hours. Simply stunning! Must do
