Formerly the main administration building for the Spanish Crown on the Guatemala Colonial Province. This is a huge with three indoor plazas inside.

This museum and building is not open as at mid Feb due to renovations. I only gave it an average rating so I could write this.

I attended the museum at Museo de Santiago. Small but very nicely layer out. The ruins in which it is located was a wonderful part of Antigua.

This collection of historic pieces juxtaposed with contemporary pieces of the same theme is fascinating and original. Well worth the time and small price.

This is a stunning little museum with modern displays and exemplarary blown glass from around the world nestled beside similar works of art from three or more centuries ago. Plan to spend at least an hour here.

This is just worth it! The art and presentation are quite lovely and will offer an education.
