There are two components to this museum: part of a grand mansion with period furnishings and the collection of the regional museum. The museum exhibits are labeled only in Spanish; an English guide was provided but it correlated so loosely with the exhibits that I found it to be of limited value. Hours are limited but admission is free. I doubt that you’ll need an hour to send everything,

This museum has some information about the indigenous people in this area, however, it does not mention that the Menendez-Braun family (formerly lived in the house) was directly involved in the genocide of the Selk'nam people at the end of the 19th century. My family and I find this oversight shocking and despicable.

This classic nineteenth century mansion is generally well furnished with original artifacts and has the potential to be quite interesting, worthy of a bit more than an hour.

However, for English-only speakers it fails because there is precious little English descriptive material, including in the handouts. The worst problem is there is no signage telling one how to access the lower level (out the back door, down stairs, and in another unmarked door) and if it weren't for the disjointed commentary in the handout we would have left having missed half of the museum.

Also, carry on items are not permitted inside and must be left in the foyer, hoping that the guard/admissions officer will safekeep everything.

This free museum is located in a former mansion. You can view the opulent lifestyle of the Menendez family from a century ago. It is very reminiscent of the mansions in Newport, USA. There is an interesting collection of furniture and paintings on the main floor. When you enter you are required to put on booties to keep the carpets clean.

. This opulent home celebrates the marriage of two wealthiest families in Punta. Enjoy the ceilings and floors, the variety of French art nouveau period pieces, and try to overlook the cracked and peeling wallpaper. Going out the back door, explore the basement servant quarters. Hint----clean bathrooms in the basement.

Architecture of an era gone by is witnessed in the colonial building set in the heart of the older area of Punta Arenas. With much of the trappings having to be imported from the "Olde World" you can feel the charm this home once had.

Artifacts, drawings, pictures of the history and the native inhabitants of the area are also on display to allow you to see the evolution here.

This mansion has all the original furnishings, and is a fascinating glimpse into the wealthy life of Punta Arenas. Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you have local currency to pay the modest entry fee.

Just loved the part of the house that was a perfect reproduction of the time when the Braun - Menendez family lived there. Always amazing to see how the billionaires of times gone by got to spend their money. Particularly liked the idea that the office had a door opening onto the garden so that the "riff raff" could come visit without coming in through the house! Some fantastic furniture, china, paintings and pictures to see along with rooms set out in the original format. Didn't quite get the small Native Indian exhibition located in at the back end of the house. Seemed out of place. Be ready to wear slip on covers over your shoes to protect the floors. No audio available during our visit. We had free entry on Sunday

Nice collection of turn-of-the-20th-century furniture. Make sure to include the basement installation.

Someone will enter because wants to learn something more about history of these parts and someone just for the fact that the entrance is free. (I've heard people talking about it!)
For me it was very nice experience and I must admit that I was surprised with good taste and luxury in the mansion. I definitely recommend to visit Centro Cultural - you'll enjoy 1-2 hours visit and widen your views on this far and remote town and the life in it.
