For such a small museum it had a wonderful collection. There were human remains, pottery and hand hewn tools on display. The information is displayed in both Spanish and English. I really enjoyed it for the price - approximately $4 CAD.

Open Sunday! Close to Playa Olas Altas, Plaza Machado. Very small, well organized museum. Could use more articulation of detail. Features both the archeology and local art.

Three small rooms displaying artifacts from Sinaloa. The display descriptions are in English and Spanish. It's small but professionally done and very interesting. 35 pesos per adult and kids get in free.
