Very nice type of museum. It has an audio guide in multiple languages, covers history about poet in a way you feel you lived there. Very rich experience, I'd recommend. The visit usually takes around an hour.
The house of Pablo Neruda was interesting even for the non Spanish speaking. It is not only a time capsule of 1970s design but also provides an insight into the world of the global artistic community at that time. The summer bar is particularly interesting. You should be able to serve around an hour here without too much trouble.
Fantastic place to visit, Pablo Neruda's houses are cosy, beautiful and full of little details. A must-see when in Santiago!
Worth the time to understand better Neruda's life, the political atmosphere at that time and a bit of Chile's history. Full of collector's bits and pieces that the writer got in his multiple trips. House itself was nicely restored by his late wife after the coup the etat soldiers destroyed it purposely.
La Chascona is Pablo Nevada's Santiago home. It continues the Oceania or sea theme and slightly resembles a boat. It is built over several levels, (making use of the slope of the landscape and optimum views) and has narrow staircases, so not particularly appropriate for strollers or wheel chairs. Each level is reached by use of a short outdoor walkway or stairs. It has an excellent audio guide which covers the life of the poet, and the history of Chile at the time. The home, belongings and gardens have been well preserved, giving a good insight into his life. It is well worth a visit. At busy times you can expect to wait, as space is limited as are audio guides.
