Museo de Colchagua
VI Region of Chile

El Museo de Colchagua es un museo chileno ubicado en la comuna de Santa Cruz, en la Región del Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins. Es una institución de carácter privado, administrado por la Fundación Cardoen, encabezada por el empresario chileno Carlos Cardoen.


El Museo de Colchagua fue inaugurado por Carlos Cardoen el 20 de octubre de 1995, gracias a la recolección de diversos objetos históricos por parte del empresario en sus viajes fuera de Chile.

La casona que alberga al museo sufrió severos daños tras el terremoto del 27 de febrero de 2010, por lo que se mantuvo cerrado por ocho meses, para efectuar diversas tareas de reparación. Cerca del 60% de sus colecciones sufrieron daños, resultando completamente destruida la colección de arte precolombino.1 El museo fue reinaugurado el 2 de octubre de ese año, con la presencia del presidente Sebastián Piñera.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
