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.

We came here after going to see and Alerce Forest. Antonio Felmer collected and showcased many old objects used on farms and in farm houses. The trees in the Alerce Forest could be hundreds of years old where the collection in this museum was only a couple hundred years old. There are stairs to be climbed for the second story.

The guide is the daughter of the founder and you... More

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!!

it's an exceptional place to learn about the Austrian, German and Swiss settlers. Very tidy and the machinery and houseware are beautiful and nostalgic.
