Do the "Ruta de las Iglesias de Chiloe". It is a great way to go and visit the most enchanting corners of Chiloe.
Jan. 2020
The "Ruta de las Iglesias Patrimoniales de Chiloe" starts here. It is a small museum, but it is very informative and fun. It is a well spent hour visiting this museum, especially if you do the "Ruta de las Iglesias", and if you do not do the Ruta, the visit to this museum is a must.

Interesting but the tour was a bust
Mar. 2019 • Friends
Nice little museum in Ancud, very little info in English, but really good displays. However, the driving tour of the UNESCO churches was relatively uninteresting. All the churches were closed, it was hard to find many, and we gave up after seeing 4 or so. Meh.

THE BEST ATTRACTION SPEAKS OF OTHER PLACES
Nov. 2018 • Friends
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 the Route of the Churches. Each church is described. There are a few relics from some of the churches, like a window from the church at Chonchi.

Still pretty small

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)

Must see for those wanting to tour some of Chiloe's wooden churches
Mar. 2017 • Couples
This museum, which is in a former wooden church, explains the 16 unique UNESCO wooden churches along Chiloe's 'Ruta de la Iglesia'. There are models of each church and an explanation (in Spanish) of their construction . The wooden churches - there are many more than the designated 16 - are in the eastern bay and archipelago and are part of a system of Jesuit missions.

Interesting museum
Feb. 2017 • Friends
While I was not that enthusiastic about visiting this museum I was pleasantly surprised and delighted. Here one can get an insight into how these old churches were constructed. I especially liked that this museum house pieces from the old churches that they had saved and curated. Some of the Spanish churches on the UNESCO World Heritage list have been, over time, heavily restored. But fortunately many objects such as windows and doors have been saved. One cannot appreciate the old Spanish wooden churches without.

Not worth a visit for most
Feb. 2017 • Family
I enjoy visiting churches, but this museum of miniature churches was underwhelming. It's just one large room with a dozen models and some artefacts. Only worth it for those with a bigger interest in such things. On the upside, one can go up the stairs inside the tower, and the washrooms are very clean.

Small, very interesting museum
Nov. 2016 • Couples
The churches of Chiloe are beautiful, and their history very interesting. That being said, it is difficult to find the information we would have like to have about them. In less than an hour, we were able to learn about these things in a pleasant, low key setting. Nice part of our visit to Chiloe

A good starting point

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 of the Jesuits wooden structures.

Good overview of the typical Chiloe churches
Apr. 2016 • Couples
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 de Armas. Don't forget to climb in the tower, nice view.
