The cost of admission is very low (50 pesos) despite the quantity and quality of the remarkable ancient artefacts housed in this museum which in turn is set within a large and very pleasant garden. There are usually very few people there, allowing you time to really admire the artefacts. There is logic as to how the exhibits are displayed, essentially you are taking a walk through time. The exhibits are all well labelled with brief details, but are all in Spanish (however English audio guides are available at reception), which severely tested my limited vocabulary!
It is spacious, clean, tidy and well lit. Staff are friendly and helpful.
There is a gift shop and a coffee shop upstairs for refreshments.
The only potential drawback, is that once again, as with many places in México, parking is at a premium, but taxis are relatively inexpensive here and would perhaps be a better option to take. All in all, this is a must see while in Xalapa. If it's good enough for Prince Charles to visit then it is good enough for me!
