This museum gives a great overview of Rapa Nui history. All of the exhibit was in Spanish and English. We completed the museum is about 30 minutes leaving with a deeper history of the local people and culture.

This museum is walking distance from the town, along the coast past the cemetery and Ahu Tahai. It is well worth a visit for 2-3 hours. Don't miss the second smaller building at the back of the museum. Check the opening hours on their website,...More

This free museum on the outskirts of the town should be seen by everyone visiting Rapa Nui (Easter Island). It explains clearly and simply, with excellent posters and relevant exhibits, the origins, development and culture of the Rapa Nui people, in the context of the...More

This is a small museum but free to enter. There is a short video in English and Spanish. There are some well-displayed artifacts and several illustrations about what is known of Rapa Nui history and what remains unknown. Especially interesting is the story of the...More

Rapa Nui itself seems like a step out of time, the museum helps understand what you have seen and also places it into context with other timely events in the world during the exploration and missionaries.

This is a great museum. Being a museum geek, I was as much into the displays (as constructed) as the actual exhibits. The place is really well designed for use and changes over the long haul... but excels in the quick conveyance of information here...More
