Impressive building and great for research
wrz 2019
The National Library is an interesting place to visit in Santiago de Chile. The metro stop is in front of the main entrance so it´s easy to find. The visits are free of charge and they always have temporary exhibitions.
It´s always a good place for research.
The building has a French style architecture. It´s a huge building, with decorated stairs and stain glass ceilings and windows.
I always go there when visiting Santiago

Impressive reference library
sty 2020
Very impressive building both inside and out. It is not a circulating library. There are lovely reading rooms and many impressive collections. You must show a passport or copy in order to enter. The circulating library is 1 block away.

We were very impressed
sty 2020
This is a very large and impressive library. Stain glass windows and chandeliers adorn every floor in this complex. The National Library of Chile is over 200 years old but the current building has been the library for just under 100 years. Very grand architecture both inside and out.

A seriously impressive library
kwi 2019
The National Library of Chile is very impressive in its size, architecture and interior. There are a number of unique floors in which there are many book rooms and collections as well as my favourite reading room on the top floor which is a must see. There is also a restaurant/cafe and plenty of community resources such as computers.

Very grand library
kwi 2019 • Dla rodziny
The place is enormous with stainless windows, glass chandeliers, some large decorated vases, places to study and free toilets. However we didn't see many books.

Always fascinating

They always have interesting exhibits. You'll learn about different aspects of Chilean history and culture. It is an architectural monument. Check out the cafe.

Nothing Here Worth Seeing
lip 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
There is literally nothing here. Just a cool building from the outside. Once you are in, there is nada. Takes maybe 10 minutes to check the scene on the entire place. Not too sure why this is on the list of things to do/see. You could skip it, and be totally okay.

Beautiful interior
cze 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This building has some beautiful interior features and houses some important archives and exhibits. I just wandered in from the street and wasn't able to find much information on the building but it would seem no expense was spared in its construction, which includes lavish stained glass skylights, chandaliers, timber panelling and marble staircases.

Not Too Much to See
lut 2018 • Znajomi
The Biblioteca Nacional is a nice, free place to stop. I found I enjoyed how quiet their garden was in the buzz of the city more than the library itself. There is only one room that seems to be more "traditional," with heavily paneled walls and ornate bookshelves. If you are in the area, it is worth a quick stop, but I would not go out of your way to see it.
