Easter Island - Chile
For the lovers of this science and those that are curious about nature, the Paleontology Museum will be your first stop in Chile. Discover and learn more about our ancestors and get to know the species that roamed the earth before us. You’ll be surrounded by mammoth teeth, remains of plesiosaurus and glyptodons, of sharks, dinosaur eggs, the embryo of a T-rex and plant fossils during this interesting trip.
At the Natural History Museum, located at the heart of the beautiful Quinta Normal Park, you’ll be surprised by a room full of vertebrate fossils from the Mesozoic period, you’ll also find the amazing Carnotaurus Sastrei dinosaur, as well as several exhibitions which will make for a super fun experience.
Do you know anything about the Milodon? This was a prehistoric herbivore (Mylodon darwini) related to the sloth which had big claws and was colossal in size. It sadly went extinct thousands of years ago. Its cave is located in the south of Chile, in Puerto Natales. Walk through the caves and capture the moment, posing next to its replica at the entrance of this natural monument.
And since we’re talking about fossils, in the north of the country you’ll find the “Bahía Inglesa Formation”, a fossil site with rich diversity which holds more than 70 species and visit the Caldera Paleontogical Museum to be surprised by a 10 million-year-old whale skull.
