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

Varied and diverse museum. Excellent collection of pre-hispanic pottery as well as a virtually complete mastodon. Housed in an interesting building near the Cathederal. Worth a visit.
