To enter the museum, you have to leave your things (such as backpacks) in the special lockers at the reception. It costs 100 pesos to use a locker, however, you get it back once you leave the museum. If your belongings are too large to fit, then you can talk to a receptionist who will take them for free.
In the museum, you can enjoy paintings from many historical periods. Among the artists, we saw the pictures of, for instance, Alvaro Casanova Zentero, Alejandro Cicarelli, Jose Ortega and Johe Gil de Castro y Morales. Besides, I liked the scale models of Santiago and Valparaiso. In the museum, there are also many other types of exhibits. You can see there, for example, clothes, posters, figures, weapons or coins. Visiting this history museum is a good way to learn something new about Chilean culture.
In the museum there are no English translations of the text displayed on the walls.
