Dropped in while strolling old town. There are maybe twenty exhibits. English translations on all of them. The museum is located off a delightful little plaza. Ha a a drink at macaws across the way. Worth a half hour of your time and supports the local arts dos why not?

Open Sunday! Close to Playa Olas Altas, Plaza Machado. Very small, well organized museum. Could use more articulation of detail. Features both the archeology and local art.

Three small rooms displaying artifacts from Sinaloa. The display descriptions are in English and Spanish. It's small but professionally done and very interesting. 35 pesos per adult and kids get in free.
