Museo Antropologico P. Sebastian Englert, Easter Island

Learn the history of the island at Museo Antropologico P. Sebastian Englert, dedicated to preserving the culture and history of Rapa Nui and its people. Named after Bavarian missionary Sebastian Englert, who lived on the island until his death in 1969, the museum houses and displays artifacts from across the island. Situated in a building with a humble, rustic design in keeping with the scenery and culture of the island, the museum boasts a rare female mo'ai figure, an extensive photographic collection, wooden statuettes, and an archive of traditional folk music. Plan my Hanga Roa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The Museum does not have too many parts, but the explanation and study of culture rapa nui is a must

  • This museum is walking distance from the town, along the coast past the cemetery and Ahu Tahai. It is well worth a visit for 2-3 hours. Don't miss the second smaller building at the back of the museum...  more »

  • Free museum and must visit in my opinion. Despite the small size and few things on display there's extensive information that's worth knowing to appreciate there history and traditions of the island. Visiting this musuem early on your Easter island visit cab help you understand and appreciate the other sites.
  • Great museum - helped us organize all the information we received from our guide. A worthy visit to put it all together.
  • Very informative! Better to check out before visiting the Ahu
  • Great way to learn a bit more indepth information about the island and history. All signs are in English and Spanish. The downside is there isn't much to see artifact wise, it's mainly a museum to read information about the island.
  • its worth being there, you can see the only one moai's eye here
