“Not what we expected....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Did not like it at all. 90% of the stores where closed and the museum with all the Mapuche stuff where closed as well. They should pay more attention to this since it was a holiday weekend and they had tons of turist walking around the city.

“Wish we could have gotten more out of it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

This museum has small display and a research library upstairs. There is also a room where they sell Mapuche crafts and products. But all signs are in Spanish only. We would have liked to learn more about the Mapuche but our Spanish isn't good enough to translate these signs. It looked like they were enlarging the museum, there was construction happening. We enjoyed walking around the town more than the museum.

“Has Potential but not yet realized”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is a museum that has very little in it, but that should be very important to the Chilean people to remind them of the inhabitants of their country before the Europeans chased out all the Indians. It merits university-level curators and a bit more animation. While I found the few exhibits to be somewhat interesting, I wanted more. If anyone reading this is in search of a project requiring a benefactor, this is it.

“Museo Mapuche Pucon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2010

This extensive collection of Mapuche jewelry, masks, statues is phenomenal. Represents 5 generations, originally from Germany, who have collected Mapuche items through the years. Rivals any museum. need to call for personal tour: Rodrigo Ulloa Metzger at [--].
