Fodor's Review

The resplendent Pabellón París houses this interactive museum that teaches the fundamentals of art to children, but the pavilion itself—with its glass domes, Pompeian-red walls, and blue-steel columns—is the real jewel. It was designed by French architect Pierre-Henri Picq to house Chile's exhibition in the 1889 Paris International Exposition (where Gustave Eiffel's skyline-defining tower was unveiled). After the show the structure was shipped back to Santiago. On weekdays, school groups explore the two floors of reproductions of famous artworks hung at kid-height. There are occasional interactive exhibits and workshops.
