This museum is housed in the stunning beaux-arts mansion called Residencia Errázuriz Alvear (1917), once the residence of Chilean aristocrat Matías Errázuriz and his wife, Josefina de Alvear. It now displays many of their very posh belongings, along with beautiful features such as Corinthian columns and a gorgeous marble staircase inspired by the Palace of Versailles. There’s also an amazing hall which has a carved wooden ceiling, stained-glass panels and a huge stone fireplace. There’s also a lovely cafe outside.

Everything from renaissance religious paintings and porcelain dishes to Italian sculptures and period furniture was owned by Errázuriz, and some artwork by El Greco, Manet and Rodin can also be seen. There are guided tours in English Tuesday to Saturday at 2:30pm.
