  • Walking from the Center and have the best postcards of the city. Bridge, Riverside market and river with the best angles. The Museum is very cute, in a German House of the colonization period. There are rooms with Mapuche issues of colonization and others. Look through the windows of the second floor and you will be surprised of the views that will be.

  • Very nice place. Well maintained and friendly people. It is a reminder of the history of the area and how people overcame adversity. There are enough articles, pictures, furniture which remind of everything.
