Welcome to Chilean Museum of Pre-Colombian Art

Chilean Museum of Pre-Colombian Art

Spanning 4,500 years and about 80 pre-Colombian civilisations of South America the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino (Chilean Museum of Pre-Colombian Art) is a fascinating place to spend a few hours. Located in the old Royal Customs House, the exhibit displays are well lit and beautifully arranged throughout four rooms set around a central courtyard. The collection provides an informative insight into the cultures of the Incas, Mayans, Aztecs and other once proud civilisations of the continent, illustrating their artistic diversity.
