Museo de los Volcanes, Neltume

2.7
#3 of 9 in Museums in Los Rios Region
Go on a journey through the universe at Museo de los Volcanes, a museum located in the Huilo Huilo community, which itself resides in a luscious natural reserve. The museum displays artifacts, findings, and curiosities from all over the world, all themed around the evolution of our planet. A mammoth tusk found in Siberia jostles for attention with walk-in replicas of Chilean coal and copper mines, as well as other interesting exhibits. Unusually, tours of the museum begin at the dome and end at the bottom of the five-floor building.

    Beautiful architecture but beware of access and lack of security to the floor 3. The environment is fascinating with a lagoon surrounded by totems, in the same way your access with their think are rehues or totems of approx. 2 m. Inside stands the recreation of a mining, here being the mining rescue capsule Fenix pique, not is if it's the original. Similarly, the effort to rescue the pieces that are exhibited, ranging from Inca pieces to the culture of the central Valley and mapuche culture stands out. I get the impression that this is more a collection of a particular eagerness to show something more appropriate to the area. On the second floor you can also see an interesting collection of minerals, but it would also be good to associate it to the same place. I am concerned about the environment in which a few textiles are exposed. It could be audio or videos to help understand more what is observed, in the same way in the language appropriate to the diversity of visits going to the place. The Horn of the mammoth find would and do not understand that it is what you want to deliver information, highlight the carving or talk about the mammoth. It is best to resort to models. Be careful that you can take pictures of parts which are exposed. You had the owner of this museum than the desire to incorporate new attractions should be more cared for, especially if they escape from the main category to which it is dedicated. For example to expose something of the place can be huemules antler or taxidermy of fauna that area is rich and varied exhibition of fungi or conifers. Volcanological or photographic history or exposure forestal.debe improve the ambient temperature of the place.
