I stumbled upon this museum as I was walking around the city one afternoon. The entrance was usually $3600 but since I only had an hour before closing I was only charged $1000. It would have been worth the full ticket, even for only an hour. The museum houses a beautiful collection of pre-Columbian art organized by geographic location (Southern Andes, Central Andes, Meso-America, etc.). The displays contain lots of information on the use of the artifacts, how they were made, etc. There is enough in English to be informative to visitors who don't read Spanish, but the Spanish texts are roughly twice as long as the English and contain more complete descriptions. In the basement was an exhibit titled "Chile before Chile" which contained artifacts from different regions of Chile as well as Rapa Nui (e.g., Isla de Pascua, Easter Island). There was a nice book shop on the first floor near the entrance. There was also a café, although I didn't have time to eat. Well worth the price of admission.
