“Very interesting Lacandon facts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

This museum has a lot of information about the Lacandones. It is very interesting as it shows a lot of the history of Chiapas and about the discovery of different Mayan archeological sites as well as the discovery of the people from the Chiapas jungle. Over all its a very interesting place.

“A Highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Not to be missed. This was a highlight! The museum is a font of interesting history and is captivating. There are many rooms in this old home and exploring each one is captivating. The grounds are lovely as well.

“An interesting slice of anthropological history in Chiapas and the Lacandon forest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Na Balom was the residence of a Danish couple, anthropologists who worked extensively with the indigenous peoples of the region. It is an interesting old building, and the collection of artifacts and books is well worth an hour or two of exploring.

This house was a delightful surprise! I had never heard of Na Bolom or the people involved before this trip. So interesting, I plan to do much more research.
