This was such an interesting thing to do. You get a self-guided audio tour with your admission. Fascinating to learn more about Pablo Neruda's life that gives context to his poetry. A very pleasant thing to do if you only have limited free time in Santiago.

Allthough it is the "least impressive" of neruda's three houses it's definitely worth a visit. it is more fun to walk through than a normal museum and you actually enjoy the information that's being given through audioguides. Gives good context to his life and also the start of the dictatorship in chile. the personal details to all his houses is... More

Me and my family went to La Chascona, and it was one of the best museum I have visit! We bought tickets and stood in line for about 40 minuites, and it was totally worth it. Since they do not let in many people at the same time, it makes it so much pleasant to walk around. The audio guides... More

Pablo Neruda has an interesting collection of objects in a space designed for himself and his Mistress Matilda. You will appreciate the house if you understand the poet's life and how he put the house together with three separate structures. The house makes sense as you know the functions of each space and how they were used. The house is... More

The other 2 Neruda houses are better, Isla Negra is the best ( & set on a beautiful coast, & on a bus route from Santiago) & La Sebastiana 2nd best. This one adds nothing & misses some of the beauty of the others. And it isn't cheaper. I think The location has been built up since the house was... More

As a non-"neruda fan" ( i know nothing about him) this house didn't surprise me... Neruda had an affair and in the end of his life, he left his wife to live with his mistress, You can see inside the house the objects he used to use in his routine...
