Excellent! Very Well Done.

This museum's exhibits and information begin with the migration of the ancients to present Baja Sur. The depictions of ancient culture contains religious practices, burial rituals, fishing, tools and many other aspects of early life in Baja. The narratives are in Spanish but easily understandable. The photographs and wall murals of Baja cave painting are breathtaking. There is a small fee for admission, except for seniors who are admitted free of charge.

Waste of time

Tried to see the museum. The middle aged curator?? was arrogant and rude and had no change at all in the morning. Said I was the first customer. So you don’t have a drop with which to make change and expect everyone to have the exact amount. 45 pesos to enter and another 45 to take pictures. Must think they are the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City! No wait, they allow cameras there. Complete waste of time.

Great collection of some amazing artifacts artfully presented. No English explanations but the presentations are exceptional. The curators have gone out of their way to honor the traditional people of the Baja. They even gave a nod to the goddesses without mentioning them as such

Amazing Museum
Jan 2020 • Couples
I did not a expect a museum of this high quality in La Paz. It traces the history of the area fromPrehistoric times to modern days. Displays are well done. The Dioramas are very detailed . Only drawback is all the signs are in Spanish, but we hired a guide so no problems.

Brilliant museum

It was a lovely museum full of well presented exhibits everything was clear and even though we had no English translation we could understand through context or supporting imagery - entry was $45 pesos which is a bargain for a level this museum is.

For a summary of Mexico, visit this museum
Dec 2019
Understand that all the placards explaining the exhibits are in Spanish, so if that's not your language, you'll miss some facts/details. That said, I don't think it's necessary to understand the words that go with the displays in order to get the gist of what's going on.

Setting up a museum is actually something of a science, and this organization has done an excellent job of presenting the history of Mexico from prehistoric forward, and has wisely used the facility to subtly drive home some important points.

One very remarkable thing is that many of the displays are not enclosed, so you can get very close to the exhibits.

I visited on a Sunday, so the gift shop was closed and no guide was available. But I'm glad I went.

Interesting exhibits

Worth an hour or so. All exhibits labeled in Spanish only, so fun to try to improve my vocabulary. Thanks google translate!
