Father Sebastian Englert Anthropological Museum

The Father Sebastian Englert Anthropological Museum is a museum in the town of Hanga Roa on Rapa Nui in Chilean Polynesia. Named for the Bavarian missionary, Fr. Sebastian Englert, OFM Cap., the museum was founded in 1973 and is dedicated to the conservation of the Rapa Nui cultural patrimony. The museum is administered by the Chilean Directorate of Libraries, Archives and Museums and houses the William Mulloy Library.

The museum houses the only female mo‘ai, as well as one of the coral eyes that were placed in the mo‘ai. There are wood statuettes, a photographic collection, archives of traditional music, and a three-thousand-volume library.
