    Galeria de la HistoriaGaleria de la Historia Concepcion, Chile
    This museum in Concepcion, Chile contains beautiful dioramas of the local and regional history, and looks at the pre-Columbian Mapuche existence, as well as concentrating on the colonial history. It is difficult to find historical buildings, houses or churches since the area has been a prime spot for some horrendous earthquakes, the last one happening in 2010 that was a 8.8 and killed many people besides destroying many structures. The museum opened in 1983 and uses the dioramas to depict their unique history, the Gran Concepcion and the Bio Bio region. Their dioramas were created by Rodolfo Gutierrez and during the off season, that runs from April until December, there is a workshop for fine arts offered to the locals and any visitors that wish to pursue such an opportunity.  The gallery that is located on the first floor of the museum houses fifteen dioramas that depict the most significant milestone of the history of Concepcion; and include Mapuche Rucas Penco, the inauguration of the city's Battle of Andalien, the palisade at the summit of Penco, the Battle of Tucapel, Alonso de Ercilla, the depopulation of Rere, the Parliament of Negrete, the transfer of Concepcion Valle de la Mocha, their declaration of independence, the Battle of Loncomilla, the Plaza de Concepcion, the 1939 earthquake, Huachipato Business and University of Concepcion.
