Museo Regional de Magallanes is another one of the former palacios of the Braun-Menendez-dynasty and it was given as a donation to the city of Punta Arenas in 1983 and it was made into a museum :
a small part of the museum is about the early days of Patagonia, the native inhabitants, fossils, weapons etc. , but the main part is the unique furniture, tapestries, works of art etc. of a luxury home of one of the richest families at the end of the world.
On my pictures you will see the outside of this Palacio, that was built in 1903. On my last photograph : the lift for wheel-chairs in the back of the park.

Address: Hernando de Magallanes 959
Directions: Museo Regional de Magallanes is in Hernando de Magallanes Nr. 959, just about 100 meters to the north from Plaza Muñoz Gamero (turn left at the Norwegian Consulate !)
