We hadn't gone with too much expectation, having found ourselves at its door almost by mistake – but found it absolutely fascinating and lovely. The audio guide is really good and at the end gives an excellent background to what was going on in Chile with the rise and fall of President Allende. Moving insight into Neruda and his funeral....

If like the poet Pablo Neruda, that would be a very interesting place to visit. It is guided, and one can learn lots of curious facts about the poet's life.

A chance to look at history through a collection of memorabilia and the life style of one of Chile's best know personalities.

Cool history, good set up, 40-45 minutes to walk leisurely around the house, walk round with a phone like apparatus, I liked it, I liked the quirky style, unique and everything had s meaning/history. Only drawback is.....$10 for a 40-50 minute museum in Chile. That's $$$$$ Worth a visit.

Amazing interiors and the story and history behind it are equally as interesting. The owner was obsessed with boats so he built the house to feel like you are inside a boat. It was built for his mistress to live in who later became his wife. He was an avid collector of furniture, art and decorative pieces. So so interesting... More

Wing Commander landed in Santiago 5 years ago and did Isla Negra ... we returned to see Pablo's city home as our #1 reason for a stopover. This is a place of history and destiny but above all a home of art with a love story. Join the storyline ... I cried through the movie presentation.

I wasn't really keen on visiting Pablo Nerudás house in Santiago. I was wrong because the visit is really interesting, shows a lot about Nobel prize winner and is everything but boring !! We have the feeling that we can share a bit of his life. Good audio guides.

It is a good visit to get to know more of Neruda's life. Besides this, there is no much more to see and the entry prices seem a bit too high for what you get.
