  • A good Museum, you'll find everything and will be pleasantly surprised already from the front door with a moai from Easter Island. Go is not one museum like the others.

  • We went to this Museum, to learn more about skeleton of Easter, a visit which is in our plans. Before entering the Museum this MOAI statue, brought from the island. On the ground floor, a lot of interesting information about the Indians who inhabited these lands previously and on Easter Island. On the second floor of the collection of insects, butterflies, birds and animals. Also quite educational. The Museum is small, you can work around for half an hour. Recommend.

  • It's expensive for what it offers. The best is outside and it's free! The moal of Easter Island. But thanks for the small shop inside where I bought a nice shirt.

  • Awesome museum. Well maintained, nice expositions. Recommended if you like cultural places
  • Achei interessante o museu! Vale a visita!
  • I think that it could be much much better. The collections are valuable and the information is very interesting. There isn't much of that in other places, not even in the network. But it has very cool. If personal, very attentive, but the museum itself lacks more audiovisual material, more space... seems to me that it needs updated and remodeled. Especially if we consider that the entry is not cheap.

  • Pelo Rapa Nui
  • Interesting site with good information. Especially on the island of Easter and the culture Rapanui. Also on the aborigines of Chile.
