  • The largest private collection of Latin America makes the Museum a delicious ride for those who are interested in the history not only of Chile, but of our continent. The tour begins by prehistory with collections of amber and fossils of animals that lived in the region, the history of ancient civilizations that inhabited South America and brings critical documents of Chilean history, as the letter that led to the independence of the country. The jewel room brings original collections of more than a thousand years of the incas and Aztecs, with a lot of silver and gold that made Spanish eyes shine when they met. A special space is the ala the big rescue that through original objects, videos and ambiance, tells the story of the rescue of the 33 miners who moved the world in 2010. Definitely a great tip to meet in Santa Cruz.

  • We are surprised with the size and quality of the exhibits. Entry $7 k, but included in value if the wine route. Region of high historical value by the archaeological pieces found in the region. For sure the best city attraction.

  • It is my second time at the Museum, notably a work has been done to improve samples exhibited in recent years. The displayed quality is first-rate, good explanations and material support, as well as being a nice place and good infrastructure (in the bathrooms, very clean, there are cradles for example). Grateful for that input will serve for 24 hrs so could make a break for lunch (we were with toddler) loq have was great. It is a must in the area is completely worthwhile!
