Strike a Pose
The privately owned "Fashion Museum" is one of those quirky places in Santiago that is fun--especially if you have a love for fashion. Founded by the Yarur Bascuñán family, one of the textile moguls in Chile in the early 20th century, the museum's permanent collection spans several centuries. Attractions include John Lennon's jacket and Madonna's conical bra (designed by John Paul Gaultier) alongside dresses from Lady Di. Temporary exhibits have ranged from World War II uniforms to "Back to the Future" theme and currently Brazilian soccer. There's a café to linger on afterwards with an espresso.
