Sights and Shopping
Since its opening a few years ago, the Museo Inchin Cuivi Ant (Ladrilleros 225) has failed to improve promising exhibits dedicated to traditionally improvised Chilote technology such as apple presses, flour mills, and woven living fences, but first-time visitors will still appreciate it, more so if they understand Spanish well enough to read the accompanying panels. On the northern approach to town, the museum is open 10 a.m.–1 p.m. and 2–8 p.m. daily in summer only. Admission costs US$1.
As the new Centro Cultural de Quellón (Gómez García and Ercilla) approaches completion, the municipal Museo de Quellón will occupy new installations here. The Casa del Profesor (La Paz between Santos Vargas and Ercilla) showcases local artists in special events.
Quellón’s Feria Artesanal, an arcade that stretches along Gómez García from the corner of Ladrilleros, displays local crafts.
