Excellent way to spend the day. Be prepared to do a lot of walking, including uphill. Great spot for photos. Friendly staff.

A well done and well preserved piece of history of Frutillar and the region. A lot of the farm machinery has been donated to the museum from all over the world as examples of the equipment used during the settlement and development of the lakes region. We took a guided tour (give a tip to your student guide) which lasted about 2 - 2 1/2 hours. Well worth hearing about the history of this farm.

After visiting the very interesting German Colonial Museum in Nueva Braunau, I was disappointed by this one. The entrance fee of about 5 dollars was certainly not well spent. Upon entering there is a rather steep path which leads to a vantage point with nice view over the city of Frutillar, There is a builidng with a forge with a few old tools. Following the path upwards, a house is reached, where the original owners lived. The house is in a very poor shape and is closed. In front of it there are a couple of old graves. Coming back to the entrance level there is a wooden water mill which is not functioning and a really well kept garden with beautiful plants and flowers. This is the best part of the museum, although of course it does not add to the history of the German colonists. I asked at the entrance for a brochure of the museum, a printed guide or at least a postcard, but none of these were avialable

Restored houses, mills, and blacksmith shops of late 19th century German settlers to Fruittilar, Chile. Very interesting and an excellent way to spend a rainy afternoon. Interpretive signage was in Spanish, German, and English. The gardens also were worthy of wandering around.
