“Cute Little Museum in Chitré”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

It is a museum situated in an old colonial building. It is a great little museum showing the history of the area. It has old pottery and jewellry from the area and also an original ancient burial ground, showing you what they used to get buried in and they used to dress them up properly before getting buried! Also on the second floor you can see the dragon masks which get made in the area, I have to say some of them are scary but definitely worth going to see because many of the locals wear these during festivals throughout the year, but some of them definitely send a shiver down your body. It is only a one dollar entry so I would recommend going just to get to know the history, however I would say that being able to read Spanish would be helpful because all the descriptions are in Spanish, so you may get lost in the ages if you can't.
