The Anthropological Museum Father Sebastian Englert is pleased to announce that it is fully operating in Tahai S/N, Rapa Nui / Easter Island.
The Father Sebastian Englert Anthropological Museum (MAPSE) collects, preserves and researches the patrimonial heritage of Easter Island and its native people. MAPSE holds an archaeological collection and specialized literature at the William Mulloy Library. Given its remote location, the museum has a unique challenge in the projection of island heritage especially to the pacific islands communities. In this sense, MAPSE also promotes on a permanent basis, the various scientific and cultural expressions from Rapa Nui to the world and vice versa. The facility is currently open 9:30 a.m. – 17:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday; Weekends, this Saturday and Sunday we open from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Interested companies and schools organizing group tours and field trips must call in advance for availability.
