After driving from Puerto Varas to Nueva Braunau, a small rural town, and following the road out of the village, in the middle of nowhere on the left side of the road we found a big brown builidng with inscription MUSEO. The sign on the roadside is also well visible, there ia gravel path between high trees leading towards the entrance. The fee is about 5 dollars, well worth to admire the incredible exhibition of articles of the German colonists arrived mid 19th century to the region. We were lucky to get a guided tour by Pedro Felmer, son of the founder of this museum, Antonio Felmer Nikitschek. The tour starts with the photo exhibition of the founding families of the sorrounding region and goes on with incredibly well preserved and extremely varied articles of homes, agriculture and house-keeping, collected through decades from the attics of old families. The exhibition leads to a first floor, where also carriages of 150 years ago are found, they were lifted in pieces and assembled in situ. There is also a bar, whwre you can get drinks, coffee and typical local cake (kuchen). If you are in the region, visit this place by all means, it will be a pleasant surprise.
