Museum of the Atacama Desert, Antofagasta, Chile

"A window to the Universe" is one of the five permanent exhibitions installed at the Museum of the Atacama Desert (MDA), in Antofagasta (II Region of Chile). The MDA is built on the levelled area in front of the Huanchaca Ruins, the remains of a silver foundry from the beginning of the 19th century. The museum, which contains unique collections, presents to the visitor the whole history of the Atacama Desert, from its geological formation up to the present times, when it becomes an important site for ground-based astronomy. This exhibition was designed and donated by ESO as a contribution to the Region of Antofagasta.
