I was initial warned off of going to visit the museum by my hostel (I'm a solo female traveler and they told me it wasn't safe to go alone), but I decided to brave it anyways and I'm glad that I did. As previous reviews have mentioned, the building and museum are nothing super special (basically just a couple of roofs put up over the footprints) but the footprints are very cool. There are no signs next to the actual footprints (although there are a few in the tiny room with ceramics next door), so I do recommend accepting the services of a guide--the guide is free but they suggest a tip. A few concrete details: it's a $4 US (about 100 cordoba) admission fee, plus another $1 if you want to take pictures. The surrounding neighborhood is not safe, but if you as long as you don't walk around you should be fine--just go straight from the taxi into the museum. I also suggest asking the guide to help you hail a taxi (both the guide and the security guard helped me find one), as they will usually be more than happy to. Coming from Colonia Los Robles (by the Metrocentro mall) I paid 70 cordoba, which you may be able to barter lower. If you are looking to also visit the Port Salvador Allende, it would make sense to combine the museum with that as they aren't far from each other.
