In many ways, a small museum, but packed full of content. Translations into English seemed like a token executive summary. Fascinating exhibits.
Iconic museum with some very cool pieces in just the front lawn. Come take a look if you're in the area. They have an original statue found on Easter Island which is closest to this region of Chile. They also have a bird man statue made from grass and flowers. They also have an original rock which locals used to use to put fruit inside the divots and would then retreive the fermented fruit which became wine a couple days later.
