  • Great exibits and well preserve artifact to look at. The atmosphere of museum is very comforting and you feel safe. There are many staff members to help you find your way around and to answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend checking out this museum.
  • Amazing museum. Great exhibition of precolonial art on the ground floor, very interesting contemporary arts on the second floor, and a great view from the top floor. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Note that almost all signs are in Spanish, so you may want to grab an audio guide.
