Unfortunately, no language but Spanish here but if you can read halfway decently, you might very well enjoy this museum. Three floors and nicely laid out. Cost is two dollars to enter and definitely worth a trip of an hour or two.

The floor between prehistory and the ranching era was under construction, so no info on the arrival of the Spanish. Also no signage on the prehistory floor, though there was a very friendly docent. Took about an hour, enjoyed the visit, and will go back...More

Only 2 rooms open and lots of construction going on. Not really worth visiting if you want a "full" Museo experience but I really enjoyed the photographs.
