There are not a lot of exhibits, aside from the posters that give you the rundown on lots of aspects of island history and life. But these boards you can read really give you a good summary of what you need to know to appreciate...More

The only female Moai is here along with a wonderful eye that was not destroyed and many other special items you don't see touring as they have been destroyed. It's a good walk from town and really tells the story.
