This article analyses the construction of social memory in three historical museums of the Magallan region in Chile. The narration of the history of the region in the museums constructs a social imaginary in which domestic Chileans who came to the Magallan region from the Chiloé island were mainly negatively connoted as dirty and lazy, or completely excluded from the narratives about the economic development of the region in museums, while aboriginal groups which were living in the region for a long time now exist only within discourses of extinct species. In contrast, Europeans who migrated to South America in the second half of the nineteenth century, and in some circumstances especially Croats, were discursively imposed as pioneers and as the builders of the region.
