Museo Municipal de Castro

This compact museum surveys Chiloé’s history dating back 6,000 years with the arrival of hunter-gatherers. Exhibits feature objects and texts illustrating the island’s settlement by the Chono and Huilliche populations, the Spanish conquest that followed in the 16th century and Chiloé’s role during the Chilean War of Independence from 1810 to 1818. Photographs of the 1960 tsunami and earthquake document the resulting destruction, while thematic displays highlight Chiloé’s mythology and architecture as well as other aspects of its culture.
