  • Ideal for anyone who wants to know a little more of indigenous culture, is worth knowing and relish in the curiosities of this culture.

  • It's not a Museum of old but it's somewhat outdated, unattractive (especially with kids) but with her old photos, its objects that all seem to come out of nowhere we go back and feet on the ground.

  • Museum is very cool, has several instruments, and information about indigenous culture. This culture that I think everyone should know and cherish, as the Indians are wise, they value the nature and gets everything they need to live.
