  • Well organized. Pleasant environment. Attentive staff. And of course the exhibits.
  • The museum contains lots of everyday utensils used in the old times in America. Music instruments, knives, weapons, bowls, etc. There are also little models of their house and its surroundings. Also some real life size models of the interiors of their rooms, people and more. It gives you the feel of how people used to live in the lands before occupied by Spaniards.
