This cultural Centre is a great idea - underneath the square it’s easy to find. Some interesting exhibitions though nothing amazing and an artisanal store. Also signage exclusively in Spanish which wasn’t so helpful. Also a few cafes that seemed popular. Left wanting more however...More

Largely underground showcase for temporary exhibits of historical and artistic nature. Also a lovely shop for well made local handicrafts.

A worthy addition to the downtown cultural scene. Great temporary exhibits. Artisan shop has excellent, high quality, authentic crafts for sale. Both cafes and washrooms of a high standard. Exhibits lack English signage so have your translation app handy.

When visiting Santiago, we like to stay in Las Condes, especially the "El Bosque" section. This is the more modern part of Santiago and you could think you were in an equivalent "barrio alto" in the States to Europe . Plenty of bars and restaurants...More

Visit Palacio de la Moneda (Government House). Changing of the guard takes place every other day at 11am, but need to be there at 10.30. Change takes about 30 minutes. It was 'on' the day we were here, but happened at 8am!!

The building is nice but the exhibits are lacking in vibrancy. Few visitors despite it being a weekend, it seems like there is an indecision in how to best use this great space

This cultural center is part museum, part store, part interactive experience and more. Well organized, with several floors full of attractions, centrally located in the center of the City, this is a place you must put in your itinerary when visiting Santiago.

Another architectural accomplishment for Santiago. The exhibits are always fun too, and a good way to spend an afternoon.
