  • Beside the normal Farm Park was a surprise to me because I was in the Museum of human rights and not liked it so much, I decided to take a walk through the Park and found the Museum which has an excellent collection of stuffed animals played in their habitat. You can actually see the technicians restoring the animals. I LOVED. I recommend especially for those with children. Free of charge.

  • The architecture of the building is beautiful. Well kept and interesting Museum, attracts attention of children to senior citizens. Well, didactic glass rooms where you can observe scientists working.

  • A class on the rich nature of the North to the South of Chile. Recommend the tour as much for adults as for children.
