This was our first visit to a coffee plantation and it was very interesting! Information from the seeds to the types of coffee was thorough and fascinating. It appears to be a very organized location with friendly personnel. The area describing the clothes and music instruments was also interesting. We would recommend this location.

We enjoyed the coffee and music museums, gift shop and watching the coffee bean drying process actively ongoing on this very well managed property. Takes about an hour at a leisurely pace.

I was completely ignorant about the Mayans and their music, I did not even know they had musical instruments. Guatemala has kept traditions and the indigenous population even though everyday is less, they have kept their languages and traditions, that the Spaniards were not able to eradicate like in the rest of Latina America. Its a small museum, that has... More

Casa K'Ojom is definitely worth a visit! I particularly loved the music museum, which was filled with all kinds of fascinating and beautiful artifacts. There are many musical instruments, of course, but also costumes, statues, and ritual objects arranged in thoughtfully laid out displays. The tour, which was conducted in easy-to-follow slow Spanish, was informative and entertaining. Plus there many... More

Understated, yet first-class museum of music, typica clothing, and culture, Casa K'Ojom is on an actual working coffee plantation with its own Coffee Museum. Both are highly professional and attentive to visitors. Gift shops and a diner are available.

A very nicely designed and thought out museum with interesting exhibits about traditional Mayan music, celebrations and processions and typical clothing from the different regions around Antigua. All set within a very pretty coffee plantation that also contains examples of typical houses found in the villages of Guatemala. All the staff are very friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend!

I was able to visit this place to learn and to taste two of my interest and passions (Coffee and Music) joined together at a beautiful place with excellent service and attention. 2 tour guides to show you around about Guatemalan coffee and music. I was able to speak for an hour with the museum director Samuel Franco and truly... More
