The Museo de la Casa de Cultura was an interesting place, but it seemed as though it was disorganized, unkempt, and abandoned. A lot of the exhibits seemed like they were thrown together but others told history of the Todos Santos area. Worth a visit as it's free and small enough to get through within an hour.

The museum covers a lot of local history & culture. Simple, informative exhibits, most bi-lingual. This is also the Todos Santos a Cultural Center, and often has local events, classes, celebrations, et cetera. A very nice stop on your visit to this Pueblo Mágico.

Stop and see the free culture and historical museum. Lots of photos from the past, cultural items and art all in one place. Don't miss it.

not very big, nothing was going on while we were there, but it was a nice little diversion to walk through.

A huge space dedicated to ... well ... dust & crooked photos. We wandered through the various rooms and it seemed like it was an old garage sale. Nothing was for sale -- it was just old stuff that it seemed no one wanted. We read some of the stories under the photos and tried to see the artifacts through... More

I was a little bit disappointed as I would expect more of a museum in "el pueblo magico". It was quite dusty and the displays shown have been a little chaotic

No fee to look around. Lots of pictures of people who have lived in Todos. I was fascinated, but I enjoy that kind of thing. They've re-created an adobe house, complete with chickens and hens.

We enjoyed learning about the town's settlers and early development; the photo collection of community leaders was very special, the mural was a great example of public art

What a wonderful venue to discover more about the history of the Baja Peninsula. Photos and artifacts shed new knowledge along with the tour guide's sharing of realities vs. myths around the naming of this unique part of the world. Also replicas of early Mexican homes were very interesting to see.
