Easter Island museum hosts a anthropological collection founded in 70’s by the father Sebastian Englert. It is a small but nice collection of the agricultural basalt tools and all kinds of fishing hooks. Nicely made posters on the walls explain the life on the island and purpose of the artifacts. You can also see some petroglyphs, weapons (wooden clubs and some obsidian arrow heads), few smaller statues and fragments of statues. Only female moai is also housed in this museum. You can also see the coral eye of the moai assembled from the pieces found. The most interesting affects for me were tablets with writings in the local symbols. No one knows what they stand for and there is only few tablets and writings that survived test of time. Wood objects and statues are made of almost extinct local trees. Entrance fee is around $2.
