  • The place consists of a small museum with handicrafts and items from around the world, brought by its owner, explained that the mummy of Egypt was something very important to the owner, that he actually had a life part tragic and glamorous part. It is missing according to my criteria, more than taken care of the gardens, which also has a labyrinth. Recommended

  • A very good opportunity to know a place that delivers culture where you can tour a House of 1900 with very nice gardens, 20 minutes from concepcion in addition is the gateway to the mouth of the bio bio River and the sea, another natural wonder of the Bío-Bío region

  • In the Museum you can see a rich collection of objects from the different cultures that Pedro Zañartu visited in his four extensive trips around the world. A delight for lovers of history and ancient cultures. Also from there is access to the mouth of the River Bío Bío where their waters merge with the of the stormy Pacific Ocean.

  • Home and museum of Senor Zanartu. World traveler and collector-- amazing amount of collection from all over and hence a look at the world around 1880... before all the good souvenirs had been scooped up. Some intriguing pieces. Apparently had a lot of time and money. He built, we're told, the house, garden and the elaborate labyrinth around the base of the hill-now sadly neglected--but suggestions of wealth are the big chopped down trees, view of his property, extensive garden layout. (Mostly untended now) and the spacious layout. Gardeners should not see this. Not to be obsessive but it begs for restoration. No using your iPhone for fear of photos. Some labels can't be translated as a result. Guide attaches herself at entrance - only Spanish. Tip expected.
  • Mr Pedro Del Rio kept a beautiful collection of interesting pieces brought from his four trips all around the world, it worth a visit
  • Suffered was a beautiful Museum even before the earthquake, then much damage that make it have more than half of the closed Museum.
