This museum was one of the best curated museums I've been to; it was beautifully presented, seemed brand new and super modern, with small descriptions that weren't overwhelming but were very interesting. All of the descriptions were in Spanish and English except for the temporary...More

Many mummies, many many burial artifacts. One of the best Egyptian collections I've seen. Includes a section on animals in Egyptian art, and another that presents artifacts that are similar to those found in King Tut's tomb - along with pictures that illustrate those similarities.

This is a small and charming museum full of wonderful treasures that are thoughtfully displayed. There is a great mixture of sculptures, sarcophagi, jewelry, weapons, art and other treasures. The older I get, the more I love museums of this size. You can see everything...More
