  • It has a variety of well-preserved antiques, in addition to the gardens, which are very well cared. Houses and interiors are displayed with shields, but you can see the details of the time. 100% recommended family and couple.

  • It must be said that Frutillar is beautiful. The museum itself is very interesting, but the best are the gardens. There are a variety of plants, trees and flowers. It is a forced place if you are in this area of the country.

  • History always enriches and this place is a beautiful way of showing it. The history of the region of Los Lagos, shows how the immigration of working people is a real contribution.
