The museum collection includes awards, letters and pieces of furniture used by Gabriela. The desk used by the writer at Liceo de Santiago, as well as the important personal book collection that was later donated to the city to make up the first public library in the district, stand out.
Furthermore, the museum houses manuscripts and prose and poetry publications by the author. It also displays material under elaboration and even unfinished works.
The aim of this museum is to bring Gabriela Mistral and her people together, showing that the roots of this remarkable writer are present in all her works.
The Gabriela Mistral Museum is an unavoidable part of the folklore of Vicuña and the Elqui Valley. Visitors may breathe that particular atmosphere typical of this region in Chile. We recommend a visit.
