The museum works together with the Chiloé community to rescue and value the cultural and natural heritage, both tangible and intangible, committing itself to sustainable development and reaffirming the archipelago’s identity. It was conceived of as the “place of encounter between the archipelago, Chile, and the world.” Chiloé’s imagery and handicraft are present in this museum. Baskets, textiles and ceramics are part of this museum’s collection.
