“Chile Monos Exposition”

Centro Cultural Metropolitano Gabriela Mistral
Ranked #50 of 565 things to do in Santiago
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 November 2017

Located next to Universidad Católica Metro Station, this center is usually worth a visit not only because of its innovative copper and wooden architecture but also because of the great expositions and cultural events that use to take place there. Chile Monos was actually a very good example of it, as it showed a very complete graphic sample of the whole history of chilean cartoons, so it was very interesting to get to know all those kinds of styles of cartoons over the years, and to see how have them diversified lately also with the help of technology. I was really impressed that there were so much cartoons and that some of them were really high quality, as I definitely wasn't aware that Chile was that developed in that area. The sample included a special place both for the chilean winner of the 2017's Academy Award for the best Animated Short Film, and for the first chilean cartoon. There you can watch some videos about these latest. I only missed there weren't more about the other cartoons, but I definitely recommend a visit anyway!

Beautiful and interesting building and very cool exhibits. As a multigeneration family, this cafe was a perfect hang out/retreat from time to time as the location is very central to other attractions and open Sundays/public holidays. Great coffee, friendly young staff, heaps of space and a overview of courtyard /student hang out with modern dance and theatre students casually rehearsing so lively things going on for kids and others to look at...

The cultural center is a well designed multi-purpose venue that can be described as a mix of a exhibition, museum, vernissage, book store and much more. We strolled around the center for quite a while, observing art by local and foreign artists and simply enjoying our time, before heading back to Bario Lastarria for dinner afterwards. No entrance fee required, simply check the opening hours and you should be good. Enjoy!

i went there wanting to attend to the theater, but the festival that was going on (santiago a mil) is so popular that all the tickets were sold out even for the next 3 days. instead i attended a contemporary dance/performance act which was really good. in the public spaces there were a lot of kids practicing their coreographies. this place breaths the emotion of the people and their passion for all kinds of arts. they also have a cafeteria, a bookshop and a wineshop.

GAM is incredible. I go here primarily forthe theater, but this is a comprehensive cultural megaplex with dance, music, classes , art exhibits. You can´t beat the theater here and even if you don´t speak SPanish you can enjoy the cafe, the art exhibits, a wine shop and bookstore. You can marvel at this cultural mecca.
