I went to see the Picasso exhibit recently and it was wonderful! The location is right in front of the Moneda and they have 2 entrances, one on each side of the Moneda, that go underground. Going earlier is best as there are fewer people, the exhibit was free and spacious and we spent about an hour browsing. They have lockers to leave backpacks for free and a nice gift shop with reasonable prices. It's important to note that the cultural center is not the same as the Palacio de la Moneda too, if you want to visit the Palace you must make a reservation online at least a week in advance, but no reservation is needed for the cultural center!

the building is very modern and has a great space for exhibits and workshops, the place is clean and definitely is at the standard of international art houses. nevertheless, the people at the desk have no clue about art, and staff seems to consist of students that for most of the time have "no idea". Security was silly, throwing out people for using their cellphone, very unconsidering and rude, furthermore the same guys refused access to the toilets later on etc. - give a small man some power and see what happens (in Chile). NO GOOD! :(

Great to find this gem under the palace. Even greater to find the Picasso exhibition in full swing and for such a nominal entry fee. Worth checking what's on when you're in town, they are priced to entice

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.
