We went to the museum on a sunday when entrance was free. There were some interesting exhibits but the interpretation boards were all written in Spanish only which we struggled with.

It is a total labyrinth with many rooms of all kinds of things: regional history, paintings, decorative things so plan at least 1 hour.

it's a treat for me to read etiquettes on exhibits in Spanish. amazing collection of paleontology artifacts. what does it mean when a native group has necklaces with human teeth...? expected more of hispanic period than they have. current exhibit on german culture very good as well.

Varied and diverse museum. Excellent collection of pre-hispanic pottery as well as a virtually complete mastodon. Housed in an interesting building near the Cathederal. Worth a visit.
