This place is a hidden gem: artifacts from all over the Americas, and sculptures taken from live modeling of native tribes in the Amazon basin, with a fascinating film about how the sculptor worked with the local people. Only $3 entrance.

Great shopping! Three stories high and lots of vendors. Spent about 4 hours there!

We saw 4 exhibits -- Indigenous peoples, The Conquest, Afro roots of the Caribbean, and Arts/crafts of the Americas. They were all stupendous! I could have spend a lot more time in the arts/crafts area, but we were on a group tour and had to leave. I was fascinated by all of the small tribes represented in the Indigenous section. Plan to spend 1-1/2 to 2 hours here. Air conditioned and lovely.
