  • Museo on Easter Island, taking on input 1 1 beautiful Moai. It is worth visiting and learn a little about this mysterious island.

  • I went to this museum to see the Moar you have at the entrance. Finally I ended up visiting him. It is true that he has a lot of pieces, but the Museum is old fashioned and need reform.

  • It has a large number of vestiges of our land and the lower part of South America. Very interesting guided visits.
