Nice small museum. The exhibit about wall paintings of Baja was really neat and something we’d not heard about elsewhere. Being on a tour helped since display signs were in Spanish (sadly we only speak English).

Unless you speak Spanish or can at least read it well, it would be wise to arrange for a guide who can translate for you. That needs to be done in advance. We just dropped in and made the best of it. One website I...More

Unfortunately, no language but Spanish here but if you can read halfway decently, you might very well enjoy this museum. Three floors and nicely laid out. Cost is two dollars to enter and definitely worth a trip of an hour or two.

there are many good displays; the narrative is only in Spanish, but you get the drift even with a rudimentary grasp and is certainly worth it
