Museo Antonio Felmer in Nueva Braunau near Puerto Varas, Chile is excellent. This German Museum rivals US German history and German History museums. My German antecedents had several of similar artifacts, which were on display.

Definitely worth a visit. The guide knows his stuff and it’s actually rather interesting. He managed to keep my 4 year old daughter entertained, something I struggle to do daily. The artifacts are genuinely fascinating and compared with the ‘museum’ in Frutillar this place is...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.
