This is a great place to learn about the early history of the Costa Grande area of the state of Guerrero if you read either Spanish or English. Some may think that a museum might be boring while on vacation, but this one is quite informative and can be enjoyed quickly.

A few good maps of Guerrero's civilization and development, Some pretty pottery, arrowheads, grain grinding stones, and wall murals, but not much else here. But its close and makes a pleasant stop on a scenic walk along el mar and the old downtown of Zihuatanejo.

I was a bit disappointed in this museum. They are in a fairly large beautiful space but the actual museum had little to display. The majority of what was displayed was only described in Spanish. There was no fee, rather donations appreciated.

Quaint little museum. Lots of artifacts and history. Inexpensive. An art show was held there one night too

This is a small local museum with archeological artifacts of the region. There are only six rooms and the signs are only in Spanish, but it is worth 30-40 minutes of your time when you are in town. Admission is free, but a donation is suggested.

We enjoyed the different artifacts some dating back 500 years.It would have been more pleasurable if the signs were in English so could read them.

This museum has some interesting artifacts and provides some good historical background, but is a small venue. There is a nominal charge to enter the site. The host staff are friendly and able to answer questions about the historical items. It's worth a stop if you are wandering near Playa Principal.

Accepts donations for entry. Only 6 rooms of artifacts. Most of the signage is in spanish. Only takes about 30 minutes to stroll through but worth it. Right on the beach near centro.

This small museum is arranged in six rooms from indigenous times to the Spanish colonial times. Not all items have an English explanation and no English tour, but the curator was very willing to explain and share in Spanish to those who can follow. Worth a visit

Not much to see for the average tourist. Perhaps of interest to the archeologist. You'll be through the museum in 20 minutes
