A beautiful and informative exposition of Violeta Parra's life. The museum shows some of Violeta's pieces of arts with informative texts, videos and sounds. It's close to the subway. The entry is free.

I'm embarrassed to say that I had never heard of Violeta Parra who is something of a legend in South America. Her life, and works hit all levels of creativity and emotions

I read a review saying only if more non-Chilean or non-Hispanic speaking people know about Violeta Parra. I must admit I have never heard of her until I saw the top review ranking this museum received here and I'm very glad that I went visited....More

There are not a lot of English signs or information at this museum but with my rudimentary Spanish I got the gist of who Violeta Parra was and her work on display was beautiful to look at. It’s free to go in; you have to...More

Parra is a historical figure in Chile, but mostly for her unorthodox life and early death. Her art doesn't seem quite as well known. The Parra weavings in this museum are the most impressive of her creations in my opinion, and are displayed well. I...More

Sometimes it's good to explore, I had no idea who Violeta Parra was, and although not a lot of English signs in the museum, I feel I do now. There is a lot of space in this place so maybe more things can be added...More

As its name, this museum is about the famous musician and artist Violeta Parra. Some of her handcrafts are displayed, among her music. There are also documentaries about her life. It's nice to visit place if you're interested, if not it may be boring. The...More

This new museum is artfully designed and well appointed. Entrance is free and the location near Plaza Baquedano couldn't be more central. There is a good deal here about the life and work of Violeta Parra, the famous Chilean folkloric researcher, singer, songwriter, painter, weaver,...More

There are not many examples of museums in Chile fully dedicated for one personality. This is the case in Violeta Parra´s Museum, where every little object is related with the life and passion of the Chilean creator.

The Museo Violeta Parra finally opened in 2015 after a bit of a delay (I tracked it down and wanted to get in in 2013, but it wasn't finished). Shaped like a guitar, it's a worthy tribute to one of the most - if not...More
