This museum is a must visit for any traveler in Hanga Roa, Easter Island. It has loads of information on the island and it’s history with collections of several photographs and actual collectibles that were found on the island. This is the best place to view one of the very few female Moais on the island. A time of about 30-45 minutes is adequate to browse through the entire museum.

Interesting, small museum that is free of charge. Free toliets. Closed on Mondays. Open 9:30-17:30 from Tues to Friday. 9:30-12:30 on Saturdays and Sundays. Most descriptions are in Spanish but some of the important ones are also in English. Do not miss the Moai eye. See photo. It is made of white coral with a pupil of red scoria (the same stone as the red topknots) and was found on Anakena Beach in 1978 near the Ahu Nau Nau. Also, the Ronhgo Rongo tablets are interesting to see (see photo). It is an intriguing form of writing and one of Easter Islands' unsolved mysteries. There are no original rongo rongo artifacts left on the island. There are only 26 original rongo rongo artifacts in existence in the world. The two tablets ar display her are both replicas of tablets kept at the Natural History Museum in Santiago.

I would recommend that people go to this museum before entering anywhere else at Rapa Nui Island. The quality of knowledge found there is very high. Historical and cultural information that can be very handy when visiting other places in the Island. And for free!

This compact museum contains pictures, information and archeological displays on Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Hyerdahl’s Kon-Tiki 1947 expedition by raft across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands. It does a good job of explaining one of the theories on how the mo’ai were transported and erected. One of the few female mo’ai is displayed here as are relics showing what the eyes looked like – things you don’t readily see at the Ahu’s themselves. Take an hour to visit and learn
