It was a beautiful sunny afternoon ideal for a stroll around the park to visit the ancient buildings which have been moved here and reconstructed. You will need a couple of hours to visit all the colonial buildings

Not a museum in the traditional sense This is due mainly to the fact it’s got no exhibits. Basically I paid to see a bunch of trees that I could’ve seen for free.

This museum is about a block from the Main Street along the waterfront. Admission is about $4.50 USD per person which is reasonable. To me, the best part is the beautiful gardens spreading out in front of the gardens. The flowers are very colorful and...More

This museum is absolutely excellent. Well worth spending a few hours to enjoy the gardens and get a flavour of how the settlers lived.

I enjoyed visiting this museum, which comprises a set of reconstructed buildings with various artefacts in them. It’s in a nice setting with attractive gardens and flowers. Although the buildings are inauthentic, they still give a good sense of the lives of early German settlers...More

This museum complex was probably the highlight of our tour. Expansive, beautiful buildings and well maintained gardens, artefacts relative to each building, the babbling stream, glorious flowers and the holly tree burdened with clusters of red berries. Some steep paths to climb, (depends on age...More

German immigrants had a large, positive impact on this part of Chile. The museum gives a person an opportunity to walk through two "typical" homes for the period, see equipment, furniture, and personal artifacts from the period. We really enjoyed our time here.

Gives you a great sense of early settler life in this small town on the shores of the same lake on which Puerto Varas is located.
