Museo Andino, Alto Jahuel

A big bonus to visiting a local winery, Museo Andino details the history of the area and its people. The museum displays artifacts from various pre-Columbian civilizations, including textiles, metalwork, pottery, and leather. Descriptions of the exhibited works are helpfully displayed in English, so you won't have to break out your phrase book. Tours of the winery and museum can be combined in a single ticket as an affordable way of seeing two of the area's major attractions. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Alto Jahuel holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museo Andino and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Free and good collection, at some point even better than the pre-Columbian Museum. Not be clear that if the origin of the collection: donations, looting and smuggling? When Ricardo Claro figure involved in a shadow of a doubt covers this beautiful Museum.

  • Beautiful area that can't be more than 35 minutes outside of Santiago.
  • This museum must be seen bye everyone who comes to Santiago. Unfortunately you have to memorize what you see for ever because you aren't allowed to take any photos which is not good for a tourist like us who comes from so far and don't have chance to see again. Even it is forbidden, it worth to try taking some innocent photos 😉
  • Small but well designed. Worth a visit!
  • Amazing things. Unfortunately can't take pictures.
  • It is a bit of a shame that this Museum is located out of the city (it is in Santa Rita Vineyards) because its collection is really vast. The size of the museum is perfect so you don't need hours to revise it all. The room with Inca gold is very spectacular and the posts next to each item are in English and Spanish. The museum includes mostly pre-Columbus art, it also has some everyday items from the Conquistadors and early Chileans.
