This small museum in the centre of Guadalajara has an interesting collection of regional archaeological finds including (to me the highlight) a full mastodon skeleton.

What I liked the most about this museum was the architecture of the building. It is colonial and it is very well kept. Don´t miss the fruit trees inside the museum, the arches and the atmosphere itself.

When you think about history exhibited in a museum, it us usually about a shot period. However, this museum managed to gather together objects starting before the first civilization evidence even existed. The must see object in their collection is clearly the mamut skeleton, which...More

The building is beautiful and the museum is free. Okay, now for the rest. Most of the rooms were closed and there is very little to see. If you are downtown, check it out, and don’t make a special trip.

Well, maybe we just came on a bad day, but when I purchased our tickets just after noon they started closing the exhibits shortly after we entered! You would think the ticket people would at least let us know in advance that they were closing...More

My husband went in while I watched the dog in the lovely park across the street. It's a beautiful building among plazas and other public sites. He noted that we've seen similar museums in La Paz, Guanajuato, Mazatlan etc. Worth the stop. Nicer if we'd...More

It was a very well spent time. The house where it´s located its fabulous on it´s own. We found a room we an "Ice age" theme. Which included local fossils of sabertooth, Mammoth, Ground sloth and others.
