Scheduled to be moved to more spacious (and rather unattractive) digs along the waterfront, Castroâ€™s free local history museum has a lot crammed into a little space. Pay particular attention to the models of ChiloĂ©â€™s different churches, as well as the exhibit explaining the regionâ€™s famed mingasâ€”the events when neighbors would gather to move entire houses, sometimes across waterways, before celebrating with a party. The museum also has a separate room with exhibits the islandâ€™s indigenous roots, though in general thereâ€™s little by way of explanation in the museum.
