Really, really well done! The explanatory videos are interesting and informative, the exhibits are fascinating, some of them arresting, and have explanations in both Spanish and English. Though it is naturally limited in scope, this ranks as one of the best and most interesting museums...More

Well preserved mummies and important artifacts. Takes about 1 hour to go through. You may not take photos, video, etc. They are very strict! You may not even have your cell phone out to check the time. This museum is worth the visit.

Well worth a visit to this small but fascinating museum showing the sacrificial culture of children and the artifices buried with them for the afterlife.

I can't remember. Oops. Not much by European standards. There are different prices for locals and tourists. Locals pay less.
