Since our motherlanguage is dutch, the spanish only text is difficult to digest. In 2 hours you can visit the museum, take a drink and snack at the replica of an old shop/bar/bookkeeping office of wool.

A gem away from the crowds

The Leleque ranch is enormous - over a million acres. It stretches almost 100 kilometres, virtually from Esquel to El Maiten, and is owned by the Benetton family. The museum is at the entrance to the ranch and it contains a number of very well presented displays of the history of the indigenous peoples of Patagonia. For the designer of the museum, these were the nomadic Tehuelche people, who had wandered around for getting on for 10,000 years, and the Welsh, who were the first to settle in this part of Patagonia, with the first immigrants arriving in 1865. More recent settlers, including Mapuche indians and other Europeans are ignored on the basis, I assume, that the territory was pretty well tamed by the Welsh and the Tehuelches. The Mapuches have a very active campaign against the ranch and its owners, claiming that the land wasn't fairly acquired. The museum has excellent signage and an audio guide in many languages. Next door is the old farm shop, which now doubles as a coffee venue and a place to buy excellent artefacts and books. An excellent stop-off on the road between Bariloche and Esquel with condors and eagles always putting on a show nearby.
