First, it has one of the best displays of regional dress around and Sergio Castro gives a talk about his collection in 4 languages. But the best thing is that the museum is a way to fund and disseminate information about Sr. Castro's work: He has dedicated his life to helping others. His primary work involves treatment of burn victims who usually live in the surrounding mountain communities and have no access to health care. He does all his work for free. He is also involved in many other charitable projects. Please see the documentary film "The Andalón" for more information about this selfless individual. I run a non-profit organization that works with indigenous women in Chiapas, and when I lead a group I always make sure we go to Sergio's museum and lend support.
