  • Is a museum very cute, very full. It has many things of the poet. Their notebooks when it started with poetry, his inspirations, etc. I recommend it above all families with children, since you learn and learn a lot about our dear Gabriela Mistral.

  • The museum recreates the birthplace of Gabriela Mistral, reflects two rooms with materials and objects of the period. More in the background is the showroom where it appears a very complete collection of life and the work of the poet, refers to national and international awards, letters and all contextualized with any phrase or fragment of poems. To the background there is a garden with a trail that concerns the interest of Gabriela Mistral by the nature and its experience in the work in the field when was nina. Is free and you can access up to the 18:45.

  • Very complete in terms of material and personal objects of Gabriela Mistral. Clean and well maintained. Would be good that have guides and translation to the English of the material explanatory for the foreigners. I agree with what they say other tourists that lacks more character considering the importance that has for Chile, its history and legacy.
