  • The Museum of the Mistral I found it very well echo. Well organized, with information fed and clean, with a nice garden. And the best thing was free.

  • Major exhibition of the life and work, in addition a video with the milestones of the poet. Recommended free entrance.

  • The Museum has four exhibition modules: six display cabinets: origin and landscape, poetry and work, Religion and spirituality, public life. Personally, I think that the Museum shows a Gabriela Mistral close and intimate, shows us his personality and concerns through its notes and personal diaries. The Museum can be routed thoroughly in an hour or a little more, a general visit will be 20 min. In "public life" photos were not referenced, which did not allow to understand its contents. It has a patio and Orchard which somehow gives continuity to the Museum because this theme in the poet. Not to be missed of vicuña.
