“Nothing to see here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

A huge space dedicated to ... well ... dust & crooked photos. We wandered through the various rooms and it seemed like it was an old garage sale. Nothing was for sale -- it was just old stuff that it seemed no one wanted. We read some of the stories under the photos and tried to see the artifacts through the dingy, dusty glass to no avail. It felt weird and out-of-place. We expected something more and were sad that it was so disappointing.

“Expectations not fulfilled”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2013

I was a little bit disappointed as I would expect more of a museum in "el pueblo magico". It was quite dusty and the displays shown have been a little chaotic

“Museum across from Casa Tota”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

No fee to look around. Lots of pictures of people who have lived in Todos. I was fascinated, but I enjoy that kind of thing. They've re-created an adobe house, complete with chickens and hens.

“Get the history in pictures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

We enjoyed learning about the town's settlers and early development; the photo collection of community leaders was very special, the mural was a great example of public art

“History Buff Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

What a wonderful venue to discover more about the history of the Baja Peninsula. Photos and artifacts shed new knowledge along with the tour guide's sharing of realities vs. myths around the naming of this unique part of the world. Also replicas of early Mexican homes were very interesting to see.
