SANTIAGO | Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino (Chilean Museum of Pre Colombian Art) is an art museum dedicated to the study and display of pre-Columbian artworks and artifacts from Central and South America. The museum is housed in the beautiful Palacio de la Real Aduana, which was completed in 1807. It’s in Santiago’s historic centre, a block away from Plaza de Armas.

The museum’s collection dates back around 10,000 years and represents over 100 cultures, curated into geographical regions – Mesoamerica, Caribbean, Amazonian, Central Andes, and Southern Andes. Artefacts include things such as tools, textiles, clothing, mummies, statues and masks. Descriptions not only tell visitors what the pieces are, but weave them into a narritive and provide context about their purpose in the culture in which they relate to.

Displays are in Spanish and English, and the excellent curation of the museum makes it easy to work your way through the exhibits. As well as the permanent collection, there are rotating exhibitions which focus on a particular topic or culture in greater detail.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
