Admission is 20 sol for adults, 10 sol for students. There's no walking or audio tour. There are only about 8-9 rooms with a handful of items each. I love antiquity museums, but this one I could have skipped.

I was impressed by the artwork here. There are signs in Spanish and English and some of the artifacts were very impressive. And since it isn't included on the general tourist ticket, it's a little less crowded, which was a nice bonus. I enjoyed it.
