“Remarkable place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I was skeptical about visiting this place given it's location. It is truly a remarkable place! An excellent collection, ranging from fossils to Darwin to the rescue of Los 33 (Chilean miners in 2010) and covers each topic in detail with excellent exhibits and thorough narratives (only in Spanish). Highly recommended.

“extensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

well worth the visit, one of the best private collections in the world. you can easily spend 2 hours in awe of the artefacts. The only negative is they have now moved the motor cars to a new museum so these are no longer available to see.

“Excellent museum covering Chilean history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We loved this museum, very extensive collection. The room dedicated to the Mining Disaster recovery was really great. Only problem is there was only Spanish on every item and we didn't have any English translation. We weren't offered any device that would give a different language for description, not sure if they have any at this location.

Wonderful overview of the area and of indigenous cultures. Inca jewelry was fabulous. The items are very well displayed and give a terrific overview of culture and history in the area.
