Museo Regional de La Araucanía information
Housed in a handsome frontier-style building dating from 1924, this small but vibrant regional museum has permanent exhibits recounting the history of the Araucanían peoples before, during and since the Spanish invasion in its newly renovated basement collection, including an impressive Mapuche dugout canoe.
Be sure to check out the small Fundación Chol-Chol boutique, a nonprofit Fair Trade organization working with 600 rural Mapuche women to offer top-quality weaving and textiles made entirely by hand.
