    an old mansion of the ruling elite in san cristobal converted into a museum celebrating the wild lives of franz and trudy blom. recently a change of administration has brought years of misuse to a screeching halt. the new administration is both honest and dedicated to making na bolom once again a center of caring, conservation and information for all. go.

    This is a place you have to visit while in San Cris. You'll fina a lot of interesting information about the history of this town and the Selva Lacandona. It could benefit of a better maintenance and a guided tour. Be sure to bring cash to buy some handcrafts from the locals selling there.
