The Chileans have brought one of the statues from Easter Island and placed it in Vina del Mar for those of us who are unfortunately not able to make the 3,000 mile trip to Easter Island. Seeing Moai will either satisfy your curiosity, or wet...More

Great opportunity to see a real Moai if not going to Easter Island. The Museum is small and interesting, with lots of information on Rapa Nui culture. Check for guided tour hours.

This Moai is a smaller one - only about 5' tall where the average size of the monoliths on Easter Island is about 13' tall and weighing 14 tons. What he lacks in stature this guy makes up for in presence - the awe of...More

As I'm sure I won't make it to Rapa Nui any time soon, it was awesome to see a Maoi in person. We took some photos and read about its journey to Vina. Highly suggest seeing it if you're around the area.

Great place to visit with the kids. There are a lot of educational things inside on Chile, animals, and insects.

This statue was brought in from Easter Island. It is extremely interesting. It is fun to take pictures standing by this statue. It makes you wonder about its original creators. It also entices people to want to visit Easter Island.

We visited this actual Moai, from Easter Island, outside Museo Fonck as part of an awesome tour with HecTour Service. It just takes a minute to stop and see this guy and take a picture. This amazing artifact arguably should be returned to Easter Island,...More

If you only stop by to take a photo in front of the Moai, you are doing yourself a disservice. The Fonck Museum is excellent. The Easter Island and Chilean Indigenous cultures exhibits are fascinating and informative and the natural history exhibits on the second...More

Hello, Sorry I have not been to Easter island. What I read about them was its a good 4-5 hours flight with decent pricing and since it was 4 of us, it would have been decent budget hit just to see one thing. Hotels there... More
