Museo Arqueol贸gico - Museum La Serena - Chile

La Serena鈥檚 Museo Arqueol贸gico, a mid-sized museum displaying archaeological findings from all over Chile, serves as a solid introduction to the history of the first people to populate the country. An impressive display of diaguita pottery (some discovered in the small Elqui Valley pueblo of San Isidro) and tools and jewelry from around the country form the majority of the museum鈥檚 collection. Plus, there are a few shrunken heads and a mummy. But the main attraction is a giant Moai from Easter Island.


Information for all displays is written in Spanish.


Hours of Operation: Tuesday-Friday 9:30 a.m.-3:50 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m., 4 p.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays and holidays 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
