Enjoyed this small museum very much. Nice to see some history as well the photographs of the first explores of the area. There is also a lovely garden to walk about. Very peaceful and relaxing.

We loved this place. There are lots of photographs of Chiapas and the Lacondon indigenous people, giving a glimpse into a unique culture. A fascinating look into the lives and careers of archeologist Frans Blom and his wife, Gertrude Duby Blom. Not to be missed

We had a tour of the museum with a guide, since we also stayed overnight there. Interesting tour and nice pictures.

We decided to visit this great museum and while we were there, we decided to have dinner and it was okay. The food was average and the service was to par. However the decorations made the visit and dinning experience acceptable overall.

For that level of detail, and this time of year, I suggest your Google Na Bolom and email them directly. The answer they give will be more correct than my guess.
