A good addition to any guided tour you take or a place to help you understand what was happening on the island. The history is so unique and tragic that you need a reference point.

After travelling around island I recommend a visit. Very nice posters tells the story of the islands, the people and their culture, both related to the statues and also to what follows the bird man tradition.

Definitely very interesting for a bit more in-depth information (more than 'and here's yet another toppled or restored statue/platform etc...'). They have the original of the coral eye that you see the replicas of in the postcards of Ahu Anakena. Otherwise, shop around in Hanga Roa for the Grant-Peterkin guide book, which describes the major and minor sites in more... More

Try to visit on the beginning of your trip. A lot of information about the culture and the ´misteries´ through informative panels.

To understand the mysteries of the moais and culture, go to this museum. Very informative and also the signs are both in English and Spanish. After going through the museum, go outside past the driveway for a unique angle in taking moai photos.

Thanks to all the reviews that had gone before we pottered down here on our first day. Well worth the walk. We spent about an hour here reading through all of the information, which was in both English and Spanish so must have been updated from an earlier review. Makes all the tours around the island much more interesting as... More

It's is a good start do understand about the island and the moais. They explain how the moais are made and show how the island were created. You have to pay about 1,000 to get in. It's the only thing cheap in the island!

I liked to visit this museum. There's a very interesting map there that shows us something more not only about Easter Island but also about New Zealand and Hawaii. There's a relation among them about the first inhabitants of these islands. But many things concerning Easter Island is still a mystery. For those who like to know a bit more... More

Small museum , easy 15 mn walk from town along the seafront towards Tahai, then turn right inland - The museum is best value for money - charges only adults - 2 US dollars per person and free for students/children. Explanations in English and Spanish. Mostly informative photographic displays and some artefacts but I found most interesting learning about the... More
