  • The museum is a place to visit and have between 3 and 4 hours to take advantage of all the samples. It has samples from fossils to modern history, through the first American civilizations, the history of Chile, world wars, among many others of interest to know. Totally recommended, the entry price(7,000) is worth it for everything you have.

  • Excellent, excellent museum covering the whole history of Chile from prehistory up until the present, with especially impressive collections of precolumbian art, jewelry and tapestry. It's a private collection of impressive scale and quality. There are also fascinating exhibits on weapons, carriages and even the Chilean miner rescue of 2010. My whole family loved this museum
