Although in this insertion I have put as a month of visit August 2018 because it is the most previous that the TripAdvisor system allows me, the truth is that I visited it about three years ago. On the visit I was joined by Helmuth Grollmus Scherer, whom I thank for all the kindness he gave me, including his help in breaking the car he was driving... The most beautiful thing about the museum for me was the opportunity to see, touch and photograph the original rudder, propeller and anchor of the first steamer that sailed the waters of Lake Lanalhue, on the shores of which Contulmo is located. The steamer in question was registered with the name "Fortuna" in Valdivia and was taken by my great-grandfather, the German sailor Germán Westphal, from Valdivia to Lake Lanalhue bordering the Pacific Ocean coast and up the Paicaví River, until reaching the Lake Port of Peleco on 9 August 1885. The steam was carried by a lanchon of about twenty meters in their slom sins in which wagons, oxen and horses went. Once in Lake Lanalhue, the steamer—owned by my great-grandfather's brother-in-law, Guillermo Hanne and his partner Juan B. Pouchucq—was renamed "Esperanza". Some ten years after my great-grandfather's epic journey, the steamer was bought by the German settler Federico Muller and renamed it "Santa Maria". Subsequently, in 1925, Pablo Grollmus W'nsche bought the "Santa Maria" and renamed it with the name "Contulmo", which is the name by which the rudder, propeller and anchor of the steam that took my great-grandfather from Valdivia to Lake Lan are displayed in the Ecomuseo Grollmus alhue in 1885.

After the visit, we were able to stop to talk and get to know some of his family and work history, he was a very friendly and dear person. We look forward to saying again and shaking your hand again.
