Very interesting. Relics are in great shape mostly from graves. Descriptions also in English.
Not a large collection but diverse.

What a fabulous museum with lovely Chilean items down on the lower floor but equally fantastic relics from central America on the upper floor. There is an endless series of fascinating items, just enough not to be overwhelming but pieces of startling beauty and in remarkable condition. The room of textiles is especially amazing and should be compulsory visitation to visitors to Santiago; simply marvellous.

Simply amazing collection of pre-Columbian art in exemplary condition. Make sure to see the textiles, they're fantastic! Plan on spending a minimum of 2 hours to view everything adequately.

Feel transported in time by walking through the halls of this museum, especially the display in the basement of true primitive and precolombian art.

This museum is worth any time you can spend—for us a few hours flew by. There are beautifully displayed artifacts from all over Latin America before any European influence, and it is amazing—the artistic beauty and technological savvy shown in pottery, metalwork, and textiles. In well lit displays with clear signage, it was easy to navigate the complexity of civilizations and timing.
