Lonely Planet review for Museo Regional de Castro
Eternally in the process of moving to a surprisingly post-modern, cutting-edge hunk of architecture along the waterfront (on which construction has stalled due to lack of funds), this museum, half a block from Plaza de Armas, houses a well-organized collection of Huilliche relics, musical instruments, traditional farm implements and Chilota wooden boat models, and exhibits on the evolution of Chiloé’s towns. Its B&W photographs of the 1960 earthquake help you to understand the impact of the tragic event. The museum’s new waterfront home will be in the Museo y Archivo Municipal building.
