Loved this museum. I go to a ton of museums, and this one was excellent. My guide was incredibly knowledgeable, even citing sources as she was talking. It was very interesting too, to see the home of a wealthy antiguan, and the layout and the uses of different rooms. Highly

This is a very worthwhile tour. Our guide was very knowledgable & enthusiastic about Popenoe & Guatemala's history generally. It's a wonderful insight into the hidden world behind the high walls and solid wooden doors of magical Antigua. But you do have to email and book a tour

Thank you for your review, We always ask people to book ahead because we are not always available, or perhaps we are touring a visit at that moment. We like to give a good quality tour and we need to schedule the visits in advance to ensure this. Our volunteers come by demand they are not here all day long, but all of them love Casa Popenoe and are very happy to give a tour. Thank you again for coming and for loving what we show here at Casa Popenoe.
