  • The Museum is small but rich in culture, is very worthwhile to know the culture, I added a lot! Worth also for the picture with the Moai of Easter Island brought! Do not miss to spend here, is a walk fast but very enriching!

  • I've been to the Fonck Museum for two occasions recently when the work in Chile. Only the Muai ahead brought from the island of Pasqua to Vina in 1961 is worth the visit. But there's a lot more inside the Museum on the island, the mapuches and anything of natural history. Recommend.

  • The most comprehensive Museum on Easter Island, guided tour and the guide speaks English. There was also an exhibition of native and natural history. Divine!

  • 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.
