Colchagua Museum boasts exhibits for every age and taste, from cowboy gear and weapons, to religious artifacts and pre-Columbian pottery. Founded by controversial tycoon Carlos Cardoen, Chile's largest private museum also contains the capsule used to rescue 33 trapped miners in 2010. Other highlights include a collection of utensils and machines used in farming and the production of wine, and a room dedicated to Charles Darwin's Chilean period, hugely influential on his later thinking.
