“Early exploreres”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

It's amazing to see pictures of the jungles of Lacandones and indigineous people. It's a small-ish museum, and won't need hours but must-see spot.

“A must ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

A must for any visit to San Cristobal. Informative about the Lacandon Maya and an excellent introduction prior to visiting Palenque, Yaxchillan and Bonompak. Easy to spend an hour or so wandering the buildings and gardens as well a s the exhibition. Information panels in spanish and english. Be sure to ask the staff to switch on the introductory video, about 10 mins long.

“Na Bolom - A Sancuary of history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This was a 40 Peso a person visit. The place is a preserved house of a couple who dedicated their lives to studying the local indigenous people of a nearby preserve. The visit was very well the worth the fee and time. The place is an old Hacienda, beautifully preserved and every room presents a fantastic collection of artifacts and history of the area. The place is also a treasure chest of books and documents in the library of the Hacienda. We took a ton of beautiful pictures, and strolled there for well over an hour. This is a must for anyone traveling to San Cristobal.
