  • It is a nice sight to see part of the history of the city of Viña del Mar. The place has very cute decorative elements and with excellent service.

  • Excellent museum to explore, the most striking is the Moia which is located at the entrance, don't have to pay to get photos, I also recommend entering the Museum and learn of the Rapa Nui culture.

  • One of the best museum in South America. A must if you did not have a chance to visit Easter Island. This museum houses rare collections of artifacts from Easter Island. Moai Statute at the front and the three shrunken heads. Definitely worth while visiting.
  • Awesome museum. Well maintained, nice expositions. Recommended if you like cultural places
  • This museum has the Moai in the entry that welcomes us. We can admire the pieces of the Rapa Nui culture. And also continental Chile - of the Norte Grande, Norte Chico and Central area and Mapuche and areas south and southern. We found a room dedicated to Andean cultures with Peruvian ceramic showcasing a sample of heads jibarizadas from Ecuador. And the second floor is dedicated to a sample of natural history with the fauna of the ecosystem of the fifth region. In a few words is missed especially recommend it to tourists. That vineyard also has lots of culture and history they offer.
