I am a museum junkie and I felt these folks did a great job telling the story of the people who had inhabited that part of Guerrero for millennia. Interpretation is simple, a chance to practice your Spanish, or take a card in English explaining...More

A few good maps of Guerrero's civilization and development, Some pretty pottery, arrowheads, grain grinding stones, and wall murals, but not much else here. But its close and makes a pleasant stop on a scenic walk along el mar and the old downtown of Zihuatanejo.

I was a bit disappointed in this museum. They are in a fairly large beautiful space but the actual museum had little to display. The majority of what was displayed was only described in Spanish. There was no fee, rather donations appreciated.

Quaint little museum. Lots of artifacts and history. Inexpensive. An art show was held there one night too

This is a small local museum with archeological artifacts of the region. There are only six rooms and the signs are only in Spanish, but it is worth 30-40 minutes of your time when you are in town. Admission is free, but a donation is...More
