Go early! We arrived around 9.30h and didn't have to wait, but only an hour later there was a queue to the Picasso exhibition. The exhibition shows different paintings, scetches and sculptures from various periods of Picassos life such as Cubism, Surrealism and the Blue Period. The exhibition has a nice size, being not too big and not too small. Unfortunately, only very few texts are translated into English so it is not very tourist-friendly.
Entrance is free everyday until 1 pm

Monday is not normally a good day for museum going, so we were so happy to find that the centro cultural was open. In addition to the Picasso show, which charged admission, there are free exhibits. We saw some photos, all about the local tiles, Mapuche textiles, and could have gone to a movie. There are restaurants too, but we didn't visit. The Picasso show was in two galleries, just large enough to to be a lot, but not too much, and really elucidating. Traveling shows come every few months.

I really liked the design and layout of this museum. The Picaso exhibit was there at this time and it was very busy. There is also an exhibit there that shows how they make much of the floor tiles you see throughout much of oldtown. One thing you need to know men and ladies is like most government buildings they have the worst toilet paper if any and there was no hand soap, so be advice to bring your own.

Given the turbulent history of La Moneda in recent generations, this cultural center is an excellent redemption of this space. As a resident of Santiago I frequently visit Centro Cultural to enjoy the temporary exhibitions that rotate every 5 months or so. As a history teacher at a local school I often bring student groups to see exhibitions of Japanese samurai armor, Qing dynasty art from the Palace Museum, the art of Picasso, and Islamic objects of art, just to name a few. There are also frequent fairs and musical performances in the lobby area. Centro Cultural consistently attracts top notch exhibitions and they are displayed with taste. Admissions is free every day until 1pm. There are other small exhibitions to visit and cultural venues to explore. The gift shop on the top floor are among the best in Santiago. This is also a great place to escape the sun on a hot summer day.
