Allow half a day! The building it is housed in is just as wonderful as its artifacts. It also has views of the botanical garden.

This is the place to go and see an amazing display of the history and treasures of pre-Hispanic Oaxaca. The building itself is beautiful and huge, and there are many exhibits. The amazing jewelry and other treasures found at the ruins of Monte Alban are on display. If your Spanish isn't good, get a guide or at least rent the audio guide, because all of the wonderfully detailed signs are only in Spanish.

This museum next to San Domingo cathedral houses many of the artifacts from Monte Alban. What is spectacular is the building itself with its arches and columns and views into the Ethnobotanic Garden below. Interesting modern exhibits in addition to the pre-Columbian and historic collection of objects.

The audio tour is worth it, especially if you have time and don't speak Spanish (the signs on the exhibits aren't in English, but the audio tour is).
