4.3
#1 of 6 in Museums in Isla Chiloe
Learn more about the cultural heritage of the people of Chiloé through a collection of archaeological, religious, and ethnographic objects, texts, and photographs at Museo Regional de Ancud. Since its 1976 inauguration, the museum has worked to preserve more than 6,000 years of history--from hunter-gatherers, to indigenous populations, colonization, and European settlement. The museum is laid out over several rooms and two courtyards, and it includes a life-size replica of the Goleta Ancud schooner, a Chilean warship built in 1843, in one of the courtyards. At the end of the tour you'll have the opportunity to purchase authentic arts and crafts like the ones on display as a souvenir.

  • A good part of the Ancud history
  • Small but very intresting and free!
  • Its a little small, but entrance is only one us dollar (and there is a blue whale skeleton!)
  • Very nice but lack much of the culture of Chiloé very explanatory and lack of information. On the other hand very nice interactive part to encourage the children.
