Attraction details
Reviewed March 15, 2013

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

This is a great museum. Get the headphones to follow along the different rooms. We really enjoyed our hour plus there.

We really liked this museum, the audio gives a thorough history to the area as well as the house. So many original furnishings, make it seem like the family had just stepped out for a moment. Amazing place!

A nice little anthropological museum to get you familiar with the context of this area, but the best part was the surprise contemporary art exhibit venue in the basement.

In Punta Arenas, stroll by the very beautiful center and just a quarter from its main square, visit the Braun-Menedez Museum which mix native indian culture with refined stuff of the most prominent english immigrant families.
