The REAL #1 attraction in Chile!
Jan 2020
There are only two REAL Moai outside of the Easter Islands--one that is in dispute that was stolen and is now on display in the British Museum in London and this Moai in Vina del Mar, Chile.
Don't miss an opportunity to see a REAL Moai!

WOW

Always wanted to visit Easter Island! Didn’t quite get there yet but was very thrilled to see a genuine Moai statue! I even have a replica of one in front of my house. Now I am going to plan a trip to visit Easter Island soon.

Very interesting museum with a nod to Easter Island and the Rapa Nui
Mar 2019
The giant Moai is in front of the Fonck Museum. It has a more officla title which is the Museo de Arqueología e Historia Francisco Fonck. So who is Mr. Fonck? He was a Prussian anthropologist who was quite a collector. He lived between 1830 and 1912. The first thing you see from the outside is the giant Moai which you might recognize from Easter Island.
Inside, the Fonck has an excellent exhibit on the history of Chile that is infused with plenty of art by the indigenous people of South America including the Rapa Nui from Easter Island.
I didn't think this was going to be very interesting but I was wrong - the museum was fascinating and we learned a lot.

Original Moai Statue in Viña Del Mar
Jan 2020 • Family
This Moai statue in front of the Fonck Museum in Viña Del Mar is an original one and gifted by the people of Rapa Nui(Easter Island). Certainly worth a photo stop when in Viña Del Mar.

Moai at the Fonck Museum
Feb 2019
We saw and examined the Moai - Easter Island "Head" Statue which is located outside the frront entrance to the Fonck Museum in Vina Del Mar, Chile. The Moai was impressive and spellbinding - but only a first taste of the other exhibits inside the museum.

A Small Moai In The Wrong Place
Nov 2019
Having seen them on Easter Island in the wind swept sides of bare hills this poor lonely and quite small Moai, claimed to be a real one looked totally out of place sitting in a street-side garden adjacent to a museum which charged Real 500 to enter

A very informative museum. Lots of information on the Rapa Nui culture. The chance to see a Moai at the entrance to the museum was a highlight.

A little taste of Easter Island
Jul 2019 • Couples
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 your appitite, for a trip a Easter Island. For me, I'd like to go marvel at the other, larger statues on the island.
