Museo del Carnaval : Michelin's recommendations
This museum will inspire visitors to return to Santiago in July to participate in the carnival. Its history is traced using photos, press cuttings, models, costumes, flags, cabezones (large heads in papier mache), along with instruments used in the processions: drums, tumbas, chachá, maracas and metal percussion. The visit concludes with a folklore display in the patio courtyard.
