Three of us went to the Museum and really enjoyed our visit. We had to show our vaccine passes on entry and then after buying our tickets we had to put any backpacks or bags we had in a locker which is coin operated -!100 pesos coin. The museum collection is relatively small and that said fascinating and eye opening. The exhibits are well kept, accessible and have Spanish and English signs. It was all amazing and very much worth the visit. You are allowed to take photos with no flash. We spent about one and a half hours there. Very much enjoyed our look into ancient Chile and the people who lived there.

A private museum with an excellent collection of early ceramics and textiles. Very good descriptive panels, including English, make this a place you could spend many hours. Well laid out over 3 floors, collection pieces in ceramic, metal, stone and fabrics, are truly beautiful. Easy to undertake self guided. Museum is closed on Mondays.

Rich collection, each piece a work of art not only of cultural or anthropological interest. Dating is very rough making it difficult to see changes over time. Emphasis is on differences between peoples in different places. Explanations are also in English but much less detailed than the Spanish ones.

The majority of the museum is closed at this time. The lighting in the displays was dim and it was often hard to see the artworks, Perhaps the lack of light was to preserve the artworks and that is understandable. That being said, the English narratives accompanying each piece were also often also poorly illuminated. In fact, I could read only a few in the Chile before Chile exhibit. The English narratives that I could read were excellent. It would have been a more rewarding experience to have toured the museum either with an audio guide or docent. Given the high quality of the collection, I would still highly recommend the museum, but with the expectation that most rooms will be closed and that at least some narrative signage will be unreadable due to poor lighting.

Their website clearly states that they offer free entry on the first Sunday of the month so we decided to visit on Sunday March 1st. I arrived with a Chilean friend and they asked me to pay the entrance fee of 8000 pesos but they let my friend enter without even asking her to show ID or prove her citizenship. I showed them the website and explained that it clearly states it’s free and does not discriminate based on nationality. The price is 8x more expensive for international visitors and they were not willing to allow me to enter for free with my friend. Very disappointing because we could have planned a different activity for the day. My friend enjoyed the museum but I feel it’s a waste of money and disagree with the discrimination practice.

Nearly all of the museums in Santiago are free admission except this one. About $6 per person to enter. The displays are very darkly lit with not much continuity. Some of the exhibits were were closed. I would recommend going to one of the other museythat are free. All are closed on Mondays

This is one of the best museums I have ever been to.

Firstly, because the building it is housed within is fabulous.

Secondly, because it not to big, so the curator has earned their money by just presenting the best of the best.

Thirdly, the way that the items are displayed is outstanding. Best ever perhaps for me. Certainly top three.

The standout for me was the lower ground floor “Before Chile was Chile” – outstanding and so beautiful. So too is the fabric section. Amazingly well-lit displays.

They have a lovely cafe that strangely doesn’t offer table service on Sunday. So staff spend as long explaining the Sunday arrangements as they would bringing you your coffee. And it’s in single use paper cups. Boo! Everything else is fabulous so how about they pay double time on Sunday and get a couple of staff in so that they can save the planet by using china cups?

Interesting Museum. We really enjoyed our tour of the Chile Before Chile room. The historian shared some very interesting information. The collection has some very old pieces, especially the mummies which are older than many of the Egyptian mummies. This is a definite must see. We were there for an hour and just focused on the one room which is specail.

This museum was a great place to view ancient art, pottery and sculpture. The textile exhibits were excellent. You can go through the entire museum in an afternoon as it is not to large.
