Chiloe was put on the world travel map with the World Heritage Site designation of 16 wooden churches on the island. This is a nice little museum but it speaks of places well south of Ancud. It certainly is a worthwhile stop if heading on...More

Nice museum with great pieces, though, if you don't have a guide or can't read Spanish, it is not a must see. But it's OK. Entrance fee is 1000 clp (which is more of a donation)

This old girls' convent house model replicas of the UNESCO Heritage wooden Churches of the Island. You get the passport that is almost useless after the end of February, as most churches are closed. You get a good overview of the techniques and the history...More

A museum to see in Ancud. The entrance is cheap, 500 pesos. It has some saved elements from Chiloe wood churches: windows, doors, crosses. It also shows how this complete wood churches were built and how techniques evolved with time. Just one block from Plaza...More
