Founded in 1937 as an Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum to preserve, investigate, spread and teach the natural heritage of Chile. It was named Franz Fonck honouring this German doctor who was a pioneer in archaeological activity. It includes material from Chile, Peru and Ecuador.

There are many objects from Easter Island. In the garden of the Museum there is a Moai, typical stone carved sculpture from Easter Island. It is one of the six Moais which are outside Isla de Pascua(Easter Island).

The second floor is the Museum of Natural History, including birds, insects, mammals and minerals.
