  • Only in Spanish. No English translation for this figure of the Chile. That's too bad.

  • Excellent Museum, not to be missed if you spend by vicuña. You instructed in all aspects of the life of Gabriela Mistral with help of a fairly comprehensive timeline. In addition, it has a recreation of the House where he grew up, a nice garden and an exhibit space with works by prominent painters Chilean Matta and Nemesio Antúnez.
