It is certainly worth while to visit this museum with a mix of all things zacatecno. A highlight is the Huichol collection and the fantastic tapestries.

It was so cool until we realized that if you download the museum's app that you can see the paintings moving through your phone!! That made the experience even more cool than seeing everything as is. I would definitely go again - wonderful experience!!

For one who speaks only limited Spanish, I was still able to gain an appreciation of the history of this area. It would have been helpful if videos had subtitles, however the other displays were well done. The Huichol art was truly amazing.

The visit to the museum was interesting and I particularly enjoyed seeing all the early coins and notes. the only disappointing part for me was that they had fabulous video's of the history of Zacatecas but it was all in Spanish.

The Zacatecano Museum gives you a quick history of Zacatecas. They have a lot of info on the Huichol people. One of the museum employees suggested i watch one of the films they had to learn more about this group of people.

It has a bit of history, art, religious items and indigenous art. So, it's highly recommendable if you want a bit of everything. I really liked the part of huichol art, it's big and colorful. For children, there's also an interactive part that seems quite...More

It is a nice place to get an overview about the city and the state of Zacatecas. Good explanation about "Huicholes" (local indigenous group) and some important events in Zacatecas history. However, this place needs more objects and more information about the building itself.

Very educational and told with great detail by local tour guides. A must to see and then make sure to hit the tram that gives you an oversight of the city. That day the King of Spain came in, there were plenty of activities going...More
