  • Interesting place to visit in less than 1 hour. Several object (linked to religion, music, play, vestment )from all parts of world . Descriptions are short and very well redacted ! A lot of learning in small time. A spanish doctor started with his own collection and the Spain state bought to keep collection open to public.
  • It was very entertaining! We learned a lot about the indigenous tribes and how they lived, and various religions they had! We spent 2 hours more or less here, and we completed the whole museum, so very recommended if you just want to spend an afternoon learning. Also, look for the prices, because if you are a minor, or a student, etc, you don't pay!
