    The Museum is located in the parque Isidora Cousiño access, is the original home of the Cousiño which properly shows the housing such as objects of mining activity (few) and old photographs... In 15-20 minutes touring it, there is much to see is quite small...

    Here is the story of l people of Lota. The rich and the poor. Magnificent property with exquisite furniture, history portrayed family owns everything and utensils and tools of the miners. A hard life (for the latter).

    We went to visit the Museum to do throughout the tour that includes a visit to Lota, the truth is that it is small but interesting, that Yes should have more information about guided tours.

    Interesting history of Chilean coal mining during the industrial revolution of the 19th and 20th centuries and the wealth of Cousiño family in the XIX century

Where to stay in Lota

As the town attempts to transition its economy from mining to tourism, accommodations in Lota remain scarce. You won't find much more than a couple of rental apartments. Consider staying in Concepcion, just 39 km (24 mi) to the north, and a regional hub of transport, commerce, and tourism. From there, you can easily reach Lota by taking the short, scenic drive along the coast.
