Iquique's former courthouse now hosts the catch-all regional museum, which earnestly recreates a traditional adobe altiplano village and also exhibits masked Chinchorro mummies and elongated skulls. Photographs explore Iquique's urban beginnings, and a fascinating display dissects the nitrate industry.
