...especially if you're on your way 'down' [or up to] from San Blas or want to check out the MAP cafe menu [lunch and dinner different]. Think this was about 7$USD and we spent about 60-75 minutes walking around and taking pictures in the not-so-huge museum. The initial rooms are split into time-based/cultural items followed by silver, gold, and shells--yup seashells--collections that appeared largely as jewelry. The museum was relatively empty when we stopped by mid-afternoon and it's eerily quiet. Some, but not all, of the displays have English equivalents but that's not really a big deal since the details of interest (dates, etc.) translate easily. Probably be a 3.5 star if I could split the difference and is worth seeing as far as museums, but there's so much 'natural' stuff to see I'd put those ahead of this when time limited. Bathrooms clean too if only a little chilly ;)
