This is a small museum in the centre of town, detailing the history of the island as well as its people. There is a display about local crafts, and then especially woodworking. There is also a display about the Chilotes going to Tuerra del Fuego to work in the sheep factories there. Obviously, there is a display on the wooden churches, so typical of the island. All information is in Spanish.

Small but ambitious collection emphasizing Castro's place from pre-historic to modern times. Not fancy but surprisingly informative. Hours are limited - we were there on a Saturday and it was open. Worth a 1/2 hour or more of your time, depending on your interests. Very close to Plaza des Armas.

An interesting collection of Chilote items, from pre-history to native populations to Spanish and post-Spanish periods. Not fancy but well-presented. Don't be afraid to ask questions of people back in the offices.
