Cañete Mapuche Museum - Museum Concepción - Chile

From the road you’ll see a white circular building where the exhibition of more than 1,200 artifacts and art gallery are housed. Set in the grounds as you enter the car park, you’ll discover a ruca (Traditional Mapuche house) and many other ancient tools, all set in gardens of native plants used by the Mapuche. The ruca is also a shop and café, which serves traditional snack foods and sells local arts and crafts.
