  • A museum with houses from the time of the German colonization in the South of Chile, cone lived with beautiful gardens, well care and a water source which gives an incredible peace. In addition, it has a House for exhibitions that change every so often.

  • It's a good place with interesting things but it could be improved if there were teaching aids that would allow a bit more than context and any maintenance information, has much untapped potential

  • Worth paying the 2800 pesos and know part of the story of the first German settlers who came to the area. The Museum area is spectacularly well maintained with beautiful gardens, as also houses employers and workers that are preserved in good condition. A good overview in frutillar
