Good place to get a feel for early Todos Santos

There are many things to see here and one can wander around at your own pace. There's a lovely courtyard and then several rooms with different themes.

Dusty, old photos presented in collage form! Dilapidated representations. Bug ridden, unsafe paths, strewn artifacts! You don't see this kind of display of Mexican history in comparable mainland towns. Where is the money to update this facility?

A favorite excursion from Los Cabos, we have been here several times. The photos here were taken December 2012. The local restaurants are very nice and there is a park that is at the center of town, a pleasant walk.

The Casa de Cultura of Todos Santos should not be missed. An older building whose walls tell the story of the Pueblo Magico in an authentic atmosphere with zero glitz. It's the real deal. Wander slowly. Read the captions. One of my favorites anywhere

We happened by this little museum on a Sunday afternoon and were so glad that we found it. While some of the other reviews complain that it seems deserted and unkept I had the opposite thought. I felt it was very well organized and very well put together considering this is such a small town in the dessert and not... More

Wander around the Museo and you'll discover some interesting rooms, artifacts, photos, and crafts of old Todos Santos. I especially liked the replica "house" in the back of the museum where you could walk in an authentic kitchen, bedroom, and hut.

I attended several evening lectures during my one-week stay in Todos Santos. Each night there was something else interesting happening, including a girls' traditional dance class; traditional gourd painting and carving, and open library hours. The museum has a terrific wide-ranging collection that includes traditional crafts, archeological artifacts, local artists' work, sugar industry artifacts and historic photos. Todos Santos culture...

I was lucky enough to see the church decorated for Christmas...wow! another plus is that it appears to be open pretty much all day.

What a great little historical tour of the area. The museum is a treat and a nice simple presentation and representation of the history of the Todos Santos town and surrounding areas. Many of the photo captions are in both spanish and english and are quite amazing that, given the severe lack of funding the museum gets for curation, they... More
