Many of the exhibits in this well organised small museum were excavated from the nearby Pacara site. The information inserts are written in Spanish but, essentially, each exhibit “tells its own story.” Moreover, an excellent film of the museum story is narrated in Spanish with English sub-titles.

This museum is worth an hour of your time as it contains a lot of artefacts from the Pre- Hispanic era. Admittedly about 90% of the exhibits have only Spanish explanations, but the quality of the exhibits and their presentation makes your visit worthwhile. At the time of our visit there was a display with photographs of the "missing". Those people from the Salta area who had been imprisoned, tortured and then murderd by the earlier military government, and whilst only in Spanish you could clearly read that the theme was "state sponsered terrorisim"

Nice and small. Very interesting. Most of the information is only in spanish.

Entrance is free on mondays and with the ticket of Pucará de Tilcara.

Go to Pucará first, the Museum will give you a good view on the life and history of its inhabitants (and you'll get in for free).

We visited on a Monday and were given free entrance. It only takes about a half hour to see it all. No signage in English, unfortunately. But the variety and interest of the pieces exhibited make it a very worthwhile stop.

The whole museum is pretty badly done, other than one good room. This room was far more modern, had a narrative to the information, and had English as well as Spanish. Basically it was the only bit worth bothering! The rest is just a large collection of various objects from various places and times - quite a lot not even from around this area. The information was fragmentary, small and hard to read (where it existed at all), confusing and only in Spanish. If they redo the whole museum the way they've done the one good room. it would be a massive improvement!
There is also a small room about some of the people that disappeared during the dictatorship in Argentina in the 1970s and 80s. This was quite moving, although nothing to do with the rest of the museum (and only in Spanish of course).

Small, but well kept museum! It's lovely if you really take your time going through, but when we went there were some school groups and it was almost closing time...

This is the kind of museum we'd like to visit more often. It is admittedly local and relatively small but explanations are complete and clearly presented, artifacts well presented and you feel that professionals have thought about the best way to transmit their passion. The visit may take a small hour but it will be well spent.

There's a nice variety of pre-hispanic artefacts here - mostly pottery - from various cultures in the Andes, but by no means the best examples. There's not much in the way of explanations either. Items are well organized and displayed and they have short brochures in Spanish, English, and French with a little explanation.

Allow a short visit time. We paid 800 pesos for two. The museum is small and lacks explanation of the artifacts. There is just a list for the items but you have to guess them...The price remains reasonable compared to what it offers. With a little more detail, the visit could be more interesting.

The museum contains archaeological pieces from the Humahuaca ravine and surrounding areas. They are arranged chronologically from the time of hunter-gatherers to the Spanish conquest.
