Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino
#2 of 86 Museums in Santiago
Since we had just completed a cruise from San Diego to Santiago, it was the perfect museum to go to as it helped summarize all the sights and items that we had seen at other museums and locations.
We visited most of the major museums in Santiago and I think that if you visit only one while in town it should be this one.

Museo Violeta Parra

... donations (for Ch$2000 thou I was given a pen - nice touch) Access is easy as its close to Banqudano metro, and should be on your list to visit as this is how to do a tasteful museum to a local person's history.
The museum is free and would advise you visit in the morning and then head to the awesome Neruda Museum up the road (a fifteen-minute walk).
