Not a large museum but worth a visit. Exhibits have Spanish and English texts. It will take a small amount of time but give you an idea of the history of the island.

After a fair walk out of Hanga Roa you find the Museum its not huge and you need no more than a hour, but is worth the trip. Walk to it down main street and back to town along the coast and you see the Moai at Tahai then continue past the Cemetery and back into town...a perfect afternoon stroll... More

This is a small museum, but very interesting in terms of collection, as it has sme unique artifacts. Also, information dysplayed (by each artifact and on the walls of the museum) is very interesting. Very well maintained. Worth a visit.

Small museum, nicely arranged and informative. This museum provides data and charts to give you a good overview. It also has the only Moai eye which is very interesting.

This small museum is worth your while as it gives you many pieces of data and artifacts not available elsewhere. It is a nice setting and the displays are nicely done.

At the museum you will not find many original pieces but a very well documented history of Rapa Nui, the heritage of the island and its people!

This will not take long and is not very expensive, but it is also quite skippable. The information doesn't add much to what you can read elsewhere (and in some cases is not as complete). There are only a handful of artifacts that are really neat to see--including one eye from the moai, and a wooden club (I wish it... More

The museum's charts and informational displays were updated and vastly improved within the past year. They are now among the first things you see and they should not be bypassed. Bilingual, in Spanish and perfect yet colloquial English, the displays tell the story of Rapa Nui and its people. The latest scientific evidence is presented clearly and concisely. Unproven theories,... More
