The main floor houses an interesting display of artifacts and relics dating back to prehistoric times. The old stone steps leading to the second floor add to the ambiance of the museum. I really enjoyed the art and statues on the second floor. The location of the museum is awesome as there are plazas, fountains and cute little shops close by.

Nice museum downtown with evidences from pre-history, ancient ceramics from Maya and other indian cultures, and some samples from Wixárica.

It tells a little bit of Guadalajara's roots. I wish there was more things to see.

Negative point: not allowed to take pictures with a proper camera (you are supposed to pay 40 pesos fee to do so). Just allowed for free with a mobile.

Good for a quick view of some local curiousities and crafts. A little dusty... not a bright or modern place like many big cities, and no real focus. Fossils, pots, art, a bit of history.

I thought it was a wonderful place. And just keep walking straight down the street and dozens of wonderful little shops and historical fountains and such. There are multiple steps and stairs.

I love both the pre-hispanic bottom floor and the colonial Guad. second floor. Plus the old colonial building itself is marvelous.
