Towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the great development of communications began. The invention of the telegraph, the radio and finally the television and the computer science, generated the great technological revolution of the twentieth century. To this is added the development of photography, film, means of transport and modern printing and writing systems. In this pavilion are exhibited all these advances of the modern world.


The horse was an important contribution to cultural development in America, during the nineteenth century and until the first decades of the twentieth century. He was joined by carriages for the transport of cargo and passengers that facilitated the life of man, especially in the countryside and his interaction with cities.

They arose from modest carts to luxurious cars. The collection of the Museum comes mostly from the colchagüino environment of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and are testimony to the rural life of the time.

Chilean Railways
From the second half of the nineteenth century the railway was a factor of progress and development. The roads began to spread throughout the country. The hard effort to impose the railroad in Chile can be seen here in elements related to its history and development. Without a doubt this means of transport transformed the life of the society shortening the distances and allowing the exit of products towards a greater commercial interchange.
