This museum, apparently an old barn, keeps many objects from the first German immigrants who settled in the Llanquihue lake area by the end of the 19th century. From beds and musical instruments to agricultural machinery, this museum takes you back in time, when no...More

A wonderful tour by Antonio Felmer's grandson gave us a very good feel for the everyday life of German immigrants in this area in the mid-1800s. Amazing variety of work and home objects, many of them in perfect working condition, collected over the years by...More

Located in a barn, they have assembled artifacts from the previous 100 years of farmers and immigrants who came largely from Bohemia. Much of the artifacts are operational, and a demonstration or tour is very informative.

It is an excellent show of late 1800's immigrant way of life. Diego, the guide, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the artifacts. Highly recommended.

This is an incredible place full of history of the German colonisation around 1860. A small but complete museum of household and agriculture items from that time and beyond. Excellent!!
