Even though I have visited several dozen museums throughout North America, South America and Europe, I don't really consider myself a museum person. I decided to visit the Colchagua Museum with a friend based on positive feedback I've heard and that we had a few spare hours to kill. It surpassed my expectations so much that I'm actually excited to visit it again in the future. For me personally, this is the most interesting museum I have visited outside of the Smithsonian sites and it kept getting better as I proceeded through the property. Despite the cheesy photos shown here, I definitely recommended to spend 1.5 hours here browsing around.

Our local guide made this visit interesting. It is walking distance from the center of Santa Cruz. The artifacts are displayed well.

I am sure there must be something for everyone at this interesting museum. we particularly enjoyed the section on the mine rescue. Some English sub-titles would be good though as I am sure many visitors would appreciate this.

This is one of those places where you think you'll only need a couple of hours but once you get inside you are hooked. One room is full of cars, buses... not pictures... real cars, the original models each with their own story. No topic is left untouched and all topics are done thoroughly. Truly outstanding.
