What people are saying:

The mummies were also discovered here, and the history is earlier than that in Egypt, making this museum with a few simple slabs and stones built with great charm. Many wax models that imitate the lives of people in the desert, combined with some stone and weaving works, plus nearly 50 mummies, needless to say, enrich this site-protected museum built in the 21st century.

    A "collection of mummies"! :)

    Well worthwhile for a visit (despite its location a little outside town) is this museum's nice collection of "chinchorro mummies" (about 20 of them each in like a rectangular bin and all in a big room...
