“Very small exhibit, but well done for what it is”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The title pretty much says it all, but I would recommend a visit if you are nearby (on the Isla Cuale). I went away with more questions than answers about the people who lived in this area before the Spanish conquest. With a ready-made audience of tourists, the town could do a better job of exhibiting its culture.

“Museum has a nice small collection of Pre Colombian Art from the region.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Not much in the way of museums in Vallarta at this moment... Rumor is more is coming soon but this museum is a good short free visit while you are walking down the Rio Cuale market area. Some big restaurants near it and an art gallery. If you like seeing some of the ancient history of the vicinity this is one of the best stops. I liked the collection of Pre Colombian. I has some good examples of art form Jalisco, Nayarit, Colima. This was a very rich area for small Pre Colombian communities. I think it is closed on Mondays. You can do this museum in about 15 to 20 min. So its a cool quick diversion.
