Not sure what we were expecting but we were expecting more than we got. However it is Cuba so expect the unexpected. If you are looking to kill an hour this place will fill that void.

Some old bones, a small cave, a view of Baracoa, not much information. Footing can be slippery. Don't wear flip flops. A 2 is probably a generous rating.

the walk up the hill was very nice, seeing the colorful houses and talk to the locals brings you little bit closer to the cuban culture. the museum gives you an insight into the indio history and quite interesting what they did with the sculls....More

It is a quirky museum in a cave over different levels. Very Interesting and it has great views. Loved the explanation about the zemís (taíno gods) and their physical representation.

The museum has its displays over several levels in a cave formation. It is not very large, but also offers a great view of Baracoa. It involves a fair bit of climbing.

It's a small place with a couple of graves of the local Taino tribe and a few artefacts. Not much to see but the Spaniards eradicated as much as they could of the local culture, so every little bit counts
