Worth visiting as one can see what Chile went through during these past years. Very well organized and you get to see a lot if you have the time to spare.

Palacio de la moneda is an amazing place to visit and it always has some exposition available. It also has a place for kids to play around, so if you are traveling with your family you will feel happy to see your kids playing there.

Upstairs, you have the presidential palace you can walk through (you may have to reserve). Underground, you have a changing variety of exhibits with quite a variety of different themes (I saw one on old samurai armor). It can get crowded in the afternoon.

This place has some nice exhibits, which I found unimpressive, but it is free and downtown so if you walk by, go in and see if you like it. The building itself is nice.

Visited the Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda during the time where there was an exposition about Andy Warhol's art. I got to enjoy lots of his artworks as well as a very detailed description and timeline of his life milestones. Although I had to...More

The entrance is a narrrow ramp, the water wall does nothing to cool this space, no seats outside except for smokers, no greenery except a sad tree. Inside is more like the central space of a shopping mall than a museum.

Lots to see here from the work of local crafts people to special exhibitions. It also has amazingly free WiFi which is a bonus if you on tour. A peaceful location to stop off.

A very nice cultural center, just south of the Palacio de la Moneda, the palace of the Chilean government, with museums, theaters, libraries, design, cinema, art, history, Chilean crafts, good restaurants and cafes.
