Museo Arqueológico Gustavo Le Paige

Museo Arqueológico Gustavo Le Paige Review

The museum traces the history of the area from pre-Columbian times through the Spanish colonization, with an awe-inspiring collection of artifacts from the region, including fine examples of textiles and ceramics. The most impressive exhibit is the well-preserved, fetal-positioned Atacameño mummy with her swatch of twisted black hair. Most of the items on display were gathered by the founder, Jesuit missionary Gustavo Le Paige.
