One of three houses owned by Chile’s beloved Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda, this is a quirky, magical maze on the slopes of San Cristobal Hill. More fun than most museums, you’ll delight in the picturesque staircase, intricate hallways, and precious artifacts (including a mural by Diego Rivera and the Nobel Prize itself). There are four new rooms newly open to the public—the kitchen, an original bedroom with new audio-visual displays, the original front entrance foyer, and a storage area—all part of an effort to convert the entire house into a public space. English-language audio guides are included in admission.
