In December 2016, I visited with the directora of the museum in their relocated office beyond the traffic circle along the malecon. (It's near that tree-shaded park across from CocoBongo.) Sixtina said that the old museum will be torn down --- boo hoo :( ---...More

Important historical and archeological exhibits of the area are displayed to a very high standard, although many of the descriptions are in Spanish it's fairly straightforward to understand the basic information.

Reading the reviews warms my heart, as I visit the museum often (I live an hour's drive up the coast) The director, Sixtina, is tireless and there seems to be a function each week. As many stated, the artifacts are stunning, the tours informative, the...More

very well presented collection of primarily coastal and slightly in land artifacts..might suggest some English sub text to better help the English speaking visitors better understand the culture and the history of the displays
