While modest in size, Archaeological Museum boasts an extensive and varied collection. Familiarize yourself with local history or travel farther back in time to the museum’s pre-Columbian archives. At 2.94 m (9.65 ft) high sits one of the museum’s most popular artifacts: a genuine Easter Island moai, located in the Polynesia gallery. Note that displays are in Spanish only and audio guides are unavailable.

  • This museum, released value, explains with pieces of great historical value, our history as a nation. It is steps from the Archway, and is recommended for Chileans and foreigners. It is self-guided, easy access.
