Museo Antonio Felmer, Puerto Varas

4.7
#3 of 13 in Museums in Los Lagos Region
Journey back to the early colonial days of Chile with a visit to Museo Antonio Felmer, housing various artifacts from the early 19th century, a time when German immigrants settled this part of the country. Exhibit highlights include agricultural machines and furniture, many donated by the area's German community. Ask the guides to explain anything confusing or unfamiliar, or read the information signs to gain a deeper understanding about the displays. Plan my Puerto Varas trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Cute Museum near Nueva Braunau and Puerto Varas. The place is very nice, surrounded by vegetation and fields. The museum itself is enabled in an old barn, and contains an excellent collection of artifacts from the period of German colonization. All very well maintained, and in our case, very well explained by the Guide, descendant of Antonio Felmer (for whom is named the Museum). Special recommendation the collection of gramophones, and all agriculture artifacts. It was an excellent visit. Beware visiting (limitados(, y si van en invierno, el museo es un poco frío.) But other than that, 100% recommended.

  • Small, but full of interesting stuff. Three floors a cafe in the second one and an excellent ambience.
  • To transport you to the past you must go to this place, here you will find a host of items in excellent condition, through which you will learn history. In addition there is a coffee shop which has some exquisite kuchen. Very good service and you can take pictures of objects.

Where to stay in Puerto Varas

To enjoy views of the volcano, stay as close to the edge of Llanquihue Lake as possible.
