Nice museum of the region. It is well laid out in a series of rooms on 2 levels and the descriptions are in Spanish and English. This entrance is included in the 'Boleto Turistico' which is worth buying of you are touring around

It is good to visit this after you take a guided city tour, so you can put some images to the info you got and understand more. There are not many exhibits. We were without a guide, so I was not impressed

The first floor is good ancient regional history. The second floor is all Spanish influence and native resistance. An enjoyable afternoon.
