Everyone has rated this highly and for good reason. You can get an audio guide and choose your pace and which areas to get more detail. It is comprehensive history of Chile in one museum.

I know it sounds like hyperbole but this is one of the best museums we've visited on Latin America. There are masses of different exhibits and just when you think it's over another roomful appears. The exhibits of fossils are good but the pre-Columbian rooms are even better, with ceramics, textiles and jewellery. We also felt the exhibit on Los... More

Hard to believe this is a private collection. If you only have time for one history museum come here. English audio only gives basic information. Hopefully in future they will provide... More

The collection they own in that museum is absolutely fascinating, it is so complete and diverse that you sometimes feel like you are in another museum. 100% recommended and I dare to say that is one of the best museums in Chile.

Located in Santa Cruz, Colchagua Valley, this museum is a very nice break from wine tasting. Allow a good three hours to do it justice. It is an eclectic collection of artefacts and reproductions following the history of Chile and South America Peru and South from the Cambrian era to current era. There is a very interesting collection of ceramics... More

A comprehensive history of the region and beyond. More English signage and interactive displays would up my rating.
