Humuhumu’s description:
The British Museum has a large collection of Polynesian artifacts, including an actual moai from Easter Island, and one of three historic Heiau Ku carvings (the other two are at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA and the Bishop Museum in Honolulu). Call the museum ahead of time to ensure you will be able to see the exhibit.

Currently (March 2009) some Easter island carvings are in the Room of Enlightenment, which contrary to the name is poorly lit, so go on a bright day. There are also some great Polynesia exhibits (including the Moai) in a temporary exhibits hall off the main courtyard.
