mapa-museo-la serena

This space holds a good part of the legacy left behind by the Molle, Las Ánimas, and Diaguitas cultures, which developed agriculture, metalworking, and pottery in 2,500 BC, where their ornithomorph vessels called duck-jugs stand out. It features a collection of 12,000 objects, archeological samples, ethnographies of other ethnic groups and paleontological work, with fossils of vertebrates and invertebrates.
