Calama Archaeological Museum

Know Calama Archaeological Museum

The Calama Archaeological Museum has a permanent display of pieces used by people who lived in the Andes before the Spanish conquerors arrived to the area. You can see what they used to hunt, for example, as well as other pieces used by the Tiawanaku and Inca culture, and how they changed until the Spanish Conquest. The population production stands out because of its handmade crafts using volcanic rocks, copper, jerseys, ceramics and even cacti.
