Museo Arqueológico information
Inside a crescent-shaped building with a leafy patio, the museum makes an ambitious attempt to corral Chile's pre-Columbian past. Its highlights include an Atacameña mummy, a hefty 2.5m-high moai (large anthropomorphic statue) from Easter Island and interesting Diaguita artifacts that include a dinghy made from sea-lion hide.
The Museo Histórico Casa Gabriel González Videla and Museo Arqueológico share admission – entry to one is valid for the other.
