Museo de Colchagua - Museum Santa Cruz - Chile

NOTE: Closed until further notice, due to earthquake damage.

It is easy to lose yourself in this museum for a number of hours. It has artifacts from a variety of different cultures from around the world and is the largest private museum in Chile. The Pavilion of Arms is of particular interest and possibly one of the most important collections in the country. It showcases pre-Columbian, African and European arms from the Middle Age until World War II. There is also a collection of firearms, swords and symbols of German national socialism from the Third Reich.
