If you are already a fan of William Spratling's designs you will love this museum. If you don't know who William Spratling is go to this museum and you will leave with knowledge of his legacy and art.

Behind the Parroquia. Inconspicuous, but well worth the 40 pesos. Good sample of Spratling's work and his history. However signage is in Spanish only.
