Who would have thought such a Museum was in the middle of Santa Cruz. This museum has a large collection of artifacts from across different time periods including some more unique topics such as: carriages, weapons across time, and the chilean miner rescue. You can easily spend several hours here. Another item to note is that your ticket is good... More

Being in the countryside we didn't expect such a well varied and educational museum that covers many many topics from fossils to (almost) present time. What makes it even more exceptional is the fact, that a lot of their artefacts were lost in the great earthquake in 2010 and yet they have such an extensive exhibition today. The audio guide...

It's an incredible collection of artefacts from fossils to typewriters. It's kind of bizarre but that's because it's compressed into a smaller area than the collection deserves. The precolombian artefacts rival those of the museum in Santiago. The Chilean miners rescue exhibit is actually quite moving.The audio guide is useful included in the entrance all descriptions are in Spanish. An... More

Nice museum. For us the collection was a bit to broad, could have had more focus on Chile. The exposition around the mine accident (2010) was extremely impressive.

If you compare it with other museums in big cities it probably will not bear comparison , but in its context it is worth visiting beacuase it represents the region and its cultural location

The museum is much more extensive than it appears from the street. It contains many rooms and many interesting and well done exhibits, particularly the one on huasos & country culture.

This museum is a pleasant surprise in the middle of nowhere, well, a small town in the middle of a valley full of vineyards. There is a wide range of things to be seen, from precolombian art to trains, from German weapons to mine rescue techniques. And all this makes you wonder: why this museum? why this collection? It contains... More
