“Incredible Roman Exhibit from the Vatican”

Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda y Plaza de la Ciudadania
Ranked #36 of 566 things to do in Santiago
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2018

A very well done artifact exhibit from the Vatican that only lasted until towards the end of March 2018. Simply an incredible experience to see this display, I was awestruck at the beautiful items they brought in.... I imagine only in Rome might you see a more complete collection on display. I would think that there are several different exhibits of equal caliber on display here throughout the year and so would be a good place to stop in when you are here to see what they have. Located directly behind the Presidential Palace building in downtown. Nice large plaza and water fountains to enjoy at the street level as well - the cultural center is actually below all of this.

A beautiful exhibition space in the centre of Santiago, and a respite from the heat if you’re there in the summer. Lots of activities for kids. Two great cafes, although these get heavily booked over lunch time. A great shop full of interesting Chilean cultural items. When I was there in 2018 they were showing an exhibition of Roman artefacts from the Vatican collection. Like all museum exhibitions that I have experienced in Chile it was superb. Free in the mornings.

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.
