Loved the variety, too much to see in one day. Great restaurant for breakfast, our waiter Carlos was extremely attentive and the prices were great.

“Great - but a bit too much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Ton's of stuff to see - can be overwhelming and tiring - not for children. Don't rent the audio - expensive and not very much information. Most of the exhibits are in Spanish - so if you don't speak Spanish - be prepared to just walk around and look.

“Give this a whole day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

This is hands-down my favorite museum I've ever been to. The building is huge, and well worth spending an entire day here. Lots of fun and interesting history, amazing artifacts, and the larger attractions have descriptions in English as well as Spanish. The cost is very cheap--57 pesos (about the equivalent of 5 US dollars). Go in the morning and stay as long as it takes to see everything: you won't want to miss a thing here!

“Lots of Exhibits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

I've been to lots of museums, but I can't say this has been one of my favorites. There's seriously lots and lots of information about the natives, that I honestly got a little sick of it. I mean, I am only 16 years old, and I did read a little bit of everything, but I thought it was too much of the same info. Although, we did have lots of fun dancing to the some of the display's music. It was pretty funny.
One of my cousins, who is around 20, really loved it. He would stop to read every written material. I'm sure he would have loved to stay there the whole day, since we only stayed there around 3 hours. If you really want to look at this museum to detail, you need a full day dedicated to the museum.
