  • For those foreigners who wish to understand Patagonia and its history. The slightly expensive entrance, for the attention and time of travel.

  • It is a small, well-organized Museum with accompaniment at certain times of voices and chants of the Tehuelche people, that allows to know part of their history their influence in different regions of the Argentina and their extinction with the advance of the colonization European. It is difficult to locate if you are from Esquel, signage is not.

  • A work controversial since in our country the issue of native peoples is always to the surface. Sr Benetton after hectares of land and to the claim of the Mapuche by way of gratitude sent to build the Museum Leleque, where we find 13 thousand years of history in a careful collection. Archaeological finds, paintings and engravings, stone tools and bone remains of wildlife and plants that allow to reconstruct the history of the early settlers around the Museum was divided into four themed rooms. It's all flawless, well-presented and guided. It is located 80 km from Esquel on Route 40. It's worth the visit.
