  • I was expecting a bigger collection of the different Indiginuos tribes, the collection was small and there were a few remakes. Guides didn`t offere much infomration 
  • After a short time I am or all of our group in this world of wonders are immersed. You get great reverence and amazement for arts, culture and crafts of individual ethnic groups. A thousand great photo opportunities await the visitors of the exhibition. Photographing is allowed! The exhibition is structured very appealing - maps, headlines, information panels in English and Spanish languages facilitate the understanding of the subjects (spring jewelry, fabrics and clothing, pottery, hunting, fishing and others) and people in the various regions. Single "shame": there are (still) no written documents such as flyers, brochures or catalogs. For a small museum shop, E.g. also useful searches if you still for souvenirs or gifts.
