This is a small museum with some interesting displays. The presentations are in Spanish. Many of the streets in La Paz don't seem to have signage so it was a little confusing to find. Walkable from the Malecon, albeit kind of a long walk. I enjoyed it.

This is a good idea, but in need of more extensive work as a museum. Having some knowledge about the city and area, I believe it is a good start for the city of La Paz. The current state of the museum is good for elementary to middle school field trips. Adults seeking in depth knowledge should look elsewhere. There is work and renovation going on during my visit in Sept, 2013.

We visited the museum and we liked. Is as instructive place with lots of "rupestres" arts, talking about the primitives indians and their way of life . Very didactic.

This museum is pretty small (four small floors) divided into 4 exhibits Mayan, cave paintings, anthropological and historical. The Mayan exhibit has descriptions in English and Spanish but not very in depth. The cave paintings are interesting but no descriptions at all. While we were there there was a curator explaining the paintings to a small group in Spanish. The anthropological exhibits had virtually no descriptions in any language so you were looking at artifacts and dioramas with no real understanding of what you were looking at. The historical floor was the most comprehensive, and had a pretty extensive exhibit on the Mexican-American war (called the North American incursion here) but the exhibits were all in Spanish. It would have been great if they also had descriptions in English (I do speak some Spanish) to fully understand the Mexican perspective on this event, as well as Baja history in general.

Whilst a part of this museum is undergoing a revamp it what there is open already is well worth a visit. We found the staff very friendly at the front deak and the information people located on each floor. It was eay to get around and some great exhibits. I speak limited spanish but for someone with not language interpreation of the information panels is a problem. Hopefully this will be introduced when the upgrade is completed. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
