A museum must always be close to people and constantly offers its spaces for education, cultural outreach and citizen encounter..
Mais caro do que eu imaginava, mas valeu a pena, o local mostra muita historia do que era feito entre 400 e 2000 anos atrás. more »More expensive than I imagined, but it was worth it, the place shows a lot of history of what was done between 400 and 2000 years ago.
It's an amazing experience and a learning opportunity that every chilean should experience. The multitude of artifacts and the bilingual descriptions make of the museum a must see in the museum's route in Santiago. I highly recommend visiting the interactive experience, you won't regret it.
Very interesting permanent exhibitions on indigenous art and lifestyles, with explanations in both Spanish and English. Good range from different cultures from all Latin America. Free 1st Sunday of each month!
