    What to Expect
    Visit: Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, Bandera 361, Santiago 8320298 Chile

    The Museum is housed in one of Santiago’s most distinguished colonial buildings. It was built in 1805, in neoclassical style, and was originally home to the colonial government’s Royal Customs House.

    Permanent Exhibition: The Art of Pre-Columbian America

    This site focuses on the art of the people of the Americas, grouped according to Cultural Areas, such as Mesoamerica, Caribbean, Intermediate, Amazonian, Central Andes and Southern Andes. The Exhibition also includes a Textile Gallery and other masterpieces.

    Permanent Exhibition: Chile before Chile

    More than 14,000 years ago, humans first stepped foot in the territory that is now Chile. Since then, different people have inhabited this diverse geography. In this exhibition, we invite you to learn about some of those ancient inhabitants and their descendants, the present-day indigenous people of Chile, whose genes, artistic expressions and epic histories are all part of our Chilean identity.

    Temporary Exhibitions

    The first floor of the Museum houses the temporary exhibit galleries. These smaller sites are dedicated to the temporary exhibits that the Museum has mounted each year.

    Suggested duration to visit the museum is 2 hours.

    I was amazed at the quality of the pieces in this museum. Had English descriptions. Not crowded. The basement was my favorite.

    We took a self guided tour. Many descriptions of artifacts are in English and Spanish. I suggest you call Trip Advisor and inquire.
