It is a nice place to go, and to know a little about the German settlers, for someone who lived in the countryside in the 70s or 80s, you can find similar machines to those already seen, but it is also an interesting place to...More

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon ideal for a stroll around the park to visit the ancient buildings which have been moved here and reconstructed. You will need a couple of hours to visit all the colonial buildings

This museum complex was probably the highlight of our tour. Expansive, beautiful buildings and well maintained gardens, artefacts relative to each building, the babbling stream, glorious flowers and the holly tree burdened with clusters of red berries. Some steep paths to climb, (depends on age...More

You will feel like you are in a Bavarian wonderland with flowers, window-boxes and wood accented buildings everywhere. A visit to this interesting museum will give you insight into the life of German and Austrian settlers who colonized the area toward the end of the...More

German immigrants had a large, positive impact on this part of Chile. The museum gives a person an opportunity to walk through two "typical" homes for the period, see equipment, furniture, and personal artifacts from the period. We really enjoyed our time here.
