The museum is much more extensive than it appears from the street. It contains many rooms and many interesting and well done exhibits, particularly the one on huasos & country culture.

This museum is a pleasant surprise in the middle of nowhere, well, a small town in the middle of a valley full of vineyards. There is a wide range of things to be seen, from precolombian art to trains, from German weapons to mine rescue techniques. And all this makes you wonder: why this museum? why this collection? It contains... More

A very full museum of all sorts of things. It almost can't decide what it is meant to be with so many exhibits that it is overwhelming. Still worth a visit and the ticket lasts for 24 hours if you want to go in more than one session.

This is an excellent museum, with great content and organization. Expecting a small town kind presentation, we were amazed at the quality and quantity of the exhibits. Not to be missed is the exhibit chronicling the mine disaster of 2011 and the rescue of the 33 trapped miners.

We went to the museum not expecting too much and were blown away by not only the amount of relics and information it had, but also by the wonderful way everything was organized and presented. The audio tour in English held our interest from beginning to end, which wound up being 2 1/2 hours. The time span reached way back... More

I had to smile at the review before mine. I'd say it was best to visit before the winery! Anyway, you could while away a whole morning here. There is something for everybody. If you are staying at Hotel Santa Cruz you get free entry (the hotel is next door).

This is one of the best small museum collections that I have ever visited, explaining the history of Chile from pre-historic times, with excellent repoductions of early historic animals, and real artefacts. The highlight must be the section on the 2011 minimg disaster, in which 33 miners were trapped for over two months and survived
