The Jewish History as you've never imagined. Only with reservations in advance. The exhibition is available only in Spanish for now.

This is a hidden treasure of Santiago. My partner who was born and raised here had no idea it existed, so it was new experience for both of us, but became a highlight of our trip. Amazing historical building, it's like stepping into royal Europe. The tour is included in the entry price, English tours available, and a real insight into the history of Santiago. The architecture, furniture and antique items are astounding. Highly recommended if you love history. Unfortunately you cannot take photos inside the building.

The Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art (Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino) in Santiago, Chile is a jewel among the world's museums and a highlight to any trip to Chile. Widely regarded as one of the best museums in Latin America, this unique establishment houses an impressive collection of artifacts from ancient Central and South America, which underscores the rich cultural diversity and artistic splendor of the Pre-Columbian Americas.
An ultra modern, beautiful museum with the most fascinating display of Chilean treasures, and not only. The amazing exhibits include pottery, sculpture, jewelry and textiles from the Chilean territory as well as from central America. We followed the free English tour (which was excellent) for about half hour and then we wondered through the floors on our own. Make sure you don’t miss the room with the textiles, which is part of the permanent exhibition. It is a room on the first floor, usually dark with revolving doors in order to preserve the artworks. Truly amazing.

The Museum of Memory and Human Rights seeks to draw attention to human rights violations committed by the Chilean state between 1973 and 1990. Its mission is to allow dignity for victims and their families, stimulate reflection and debate and to promote respect and tolerance in order that these events never happen again. It is a Bicentennial project, inaugurated on January 2010, by then President Bachelet. Its purpose is to promote educational initiatives that enhance knowledge and consideration. Its location, on Matucana Street, is also part of an ongoing effort to promote the cultural circuit of Santiago's West Side. Through objects, documents and archives presented in different settings and formats, as well as a innovative sight and sound presentation, it is possible to learn part of this history: the military coup, the repression that took place in the following years, the resistance movement, exile, international solidarity, reparation policies.
This is a sobering look at the atrocities committed in Chile under the Pinochet Regime, and a must-see for visitors to Santiago. The museum itself is beautiful and well laid-out, and the exhibits inside are easy to follow and really reveal a lot of details about the darker history of Chile.

I know Violeta Parra only for her song Gracias A La Vida. Walking around in the city I saw a sign to this museum. Free entry. Many paintings outside and a lot to see inside. You hear her music, can read her poetry see her textile needle work. Close to the metro station Baquedano.

The first interactive museum about the firemen of Chile. MUBO is an exciting experience, that invites all to get involved in the history, emotions and memories of these firemen.This museum offers the opportunity to learn about the firefighter's heritage across the Chilean history, and to feel engaged with the commitment of these men, who are the only ones that are 100% volunteer in the world.
So glad we spotted this little private museum. We spent about an hour here. The museum us midterm and the displays, particularly in Room 1 are really well done in Spanish and in English. There are good interactive displays too and the use of modern technology and videos. It was fascinating to read about the history and devastating to see some of the fires that have ravaged the towns and buildings such as that in Valparaiso and also the Basilica in Santiago. Good things for little kids too . Outside yes a lovely courtyard with shiny old fire engines. It was very reasonably priced for entry. Can't recommend it highly enough. I shoukd also add it has very good air conditioning which was perfect fir a very hot day like today.
