  • Interessting place!
  • I would call more than Museum art exhibition. Although they have some else that one would see in a museum the most of the above is the work of Héctor Cruz. It must be recognized that the place is very nice and is much enjoyed the art related to the culture of the indigenous peoples of our country. However the guided tour is a little hurried and there are many things that are replicas. Crafts for sale selection is very nice but need to know that elsewhere more in the North or in the own positions of local craftsmen are available at best price. Finally, a nice place to visit but knowing that exposure is more artistic than historical

  • I could never imagine in a place so far away from everything a museum so interesting, focusing native beliefs, I want to highlight the pieces of tapestry by the artist, founder of the Museum, Mr. Héctor Cruz, is worth the visit.

  • Excellent place! Incredible everything that there is to go. It shows our culture very well. Very good to kids. And you have access to people with reduced mobility. They are finishing a bar overlooking the sierra which would be the only thing missing, since you have to enter a room to buy all sorts of memorabilia indigenous.
