“So big - plan enough time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

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

“modest but informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

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.
