Fodor's Review

Housing many fascinating artifacts—including an impressive collection of Diaguita pottery—this museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the region. The Archaeology Museum contains one of the world's best collections of precolonial ceramics. Also here is a moai (carved stone head) from Easter Island.
