It's a space. A big space. Well designed, fantastic building but what is it? It's not a museum. In sme ways it sets the scene for the wonders of the Valle but does not add anything exponentially. It has a small shop. Difficult to understand...More

Good museum, and the child's play area kept our kids (5,9,11) entertained for a while. Amazing display of genital symbols and other carved art forms. Worth doing if you're in the village.

The displays in the PIP were good and should improve when the exhibits increase later in 2016. The staff were very informative and helpful

Some decent displays and several visual productions (movies, videos) but most without any useful commentary or narrative. Good clips of historical nature how pre-historic man developed different skills to improve his quality of life.

Thoroughly enjoyed the museum. A brilliantly modern facility, free and excellent presentation of facts. It is probably more for adults.

I went because of the amazing exhibition of Agatha Kawa...The place is nice but there isn't much to see. Its purpose is to give informations on the area and it is good to stop by if you don't really know where to go.

For a free museum this is excellent. Gives a good basic understanding. Doesn't take long (less than an hour) but very thought provoking and makes you want to go away and find out more.
