“Great stop and break in the day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This small local museum is a great way to learn more about the history of the native people of the area and how they lived. It's nothing spectacular, but definitely worth your time if you have a spare 45 minutes and are interested in the land and its people. I'd recommend it to any visitor to the area.

“Needs more English”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Nice little place with some artifacts. I have SOME Spanish but wished all the exhibit had translations. About 30% were nicely interpreted. Worth a look. The docents were there but sat around chatting while we looked around, then one tried to sell us a ruin tour on the way out. Wished he´d taken us around the place and filled us in.

“Artifacts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Not a lot. But cool to see. Some art. There are photos and maps. The english panels are not well translated. But you can get the drift. I would have liked to have seen more historical photos of Zihuatanejo. It's just 10 pesos.

“New museum worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We toured the museum as well as some of the grounds of this relatively recently discovered archaeological site with a guide who spoke English from our hote. The guides at the museum do not speak English, so it helps to have an interpretation.
