  • Known as the Museo Regional de Magallanes, it is worth spending time to explore. It is far more complete and furnished than the Sara Braun mansion which is just around the corner.  more »
  • Some of the 19th century immigrants to Punta Arenas really made good. This mansion is beautiful inside and gives a brilliant impression of a way of life that has disappeared for ever.  more »

  • Un.muy is good, very complete Museum, which recounts the glorious past of the business family Braun Menéndez. It is a mansion, which keeps their styles, with original furniture, and several related exhibitions. Fabric slippers, should be used to prevent damage to the wood floor. missed the underground, which contains rooms of the servants, a gigantic kitchen and boilers. It is like entering an episode of Downton Abbey. And the price is ridiculous ($3,000). To all of my liking.
