Patagonian Regional MuseumRegión de Aysén
General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo
The Patagonian Regional Museum, recently relocated to new quarters in the House of Culture (Eusebio Lillo 23, tel. 065/213174), documents the regional history through a series of very well-presented historical photographs and household implements used by the early inhabitants of the area. The opening hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily in the summer, and 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday and Saturday, and 3 to 7 p.m. on the other days of the week for the rest of the year. Admission costs US$0.60.
Nearby, on Baquedano median strip, the Monumento al Ovejero (Monument to the Shepherd) commemorates the sheep farmers, pioneers of Aisén. A series of statues consist of shepherds with their flocks and their dogs.
