“A Great City Escape-good museums”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is a perfect city escape. The metro drops you off right at the park. There are paddleboats you can rent, the natural history museum (A great overview of Chile), and the train museum is also really nice, inexpensive and perfect for kids.

“Interesting museums in a pleasant setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Accessible from the subway stop Quinta Normal. Of the several museums in this park, we visited three. We liked best the Museo Ferroviario, which has a good collection of railroad steam engines and related items. One can walk through one of the carriages. The Artequin museum is housed in an Art Nouveau building brought from a Paris exposition. It contains reproductions of famous paintings and sculptures intended mainly for children. They are quite interesting unless one has seen the originals. The third museum was a Natural History Museum which had some moderately interesting exhibits.
