Museo Regional de Magallanes

Museum in Punta Arenas

This opulent mansion testifies to the wealth and power of pioneer sheep farmers in the late 19th century. The well-maintained interior houses a regional historical museum (ask for booklets in English) and original exquisite French-nouveau family furnishings, from intricate wooden inlaid floors to Chinese vases. In former servants’ quarters, a downstairs cafe is perfect for a pisco sour while soaking up the grandeur.
