“Meh.”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

I suppose if you're in Santiago, this is a necessary historical stop. But there's nothing to see here. The museum is pretty okay, but the plaza and the palace are... what you'd expect. No one is going to drool over the photos.

“A must for the tourist”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Exploring the history of Chile, you have to see the palace and the museum. I just go to have a look around and see what is new. Sometimes you can pick up your free ticket for another event or cinema.

“Beautiful Palace!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The Presidential Palace is amazing. It is completely surrounded by guards and police. It is gorgeous from the front and the back is amazing too. Behind it is a huge national flag of Chile and the bustling city. I took about 50 photos here! and it was just a quick nighttime stroll :)
