  • It is the Chilean Museum, founded Father Sebastian Englert and keeps a valuable collection of graphic objects and drawing on the culture of Rapa - Nui. The museum collects, preserves and researches ancestral heritage of Easter Island and its native naroda.Dlya this purpose MAP keeps archaeological and specialized bibliographic collection. Given its remoteness, the Museum has a unique challenge in the projection of the island heritage. In this sense, it also contributes, on an ongoing basis, the various scientific and cultural manifestations with - and Rapa Nui.
  • I wouldn't cry if I missed this on my checklist. Just boards of texts and very few pieces of stones. I would have cried if they charged.
  • This a very fine museum made in modern european style. It gives the visitors a tour tru the interesting history of Easter Island. Regrettably it lacks a discription of the different and unique houses (shelters) of the island, which have nothing alike in the Pasific. A full size model of a long hut would be suiteable on the lawn beside the buildings. Ottar Vendel Sweden
  • Lots of information here, much of it in text form and through photographs and illustrations.
  • A museum that is a little big as name, actually could catalog it as an example of photographic spot where account had briefly history of the Rapa Nui, with some little representative pieces of the culture, in order to go and read what is exposed, is free, if you are a few days on the island do without this place.
