This museum was nothing special, but an okay way to spend a couple of hours. Most of the rooms are decorated as they would have been in colonial times, with accompanying info. There are also a couple of rooms with items like weapons, silver, crockery...More

This shows you how early life was for a Spanish Grandee governor and his family. Notice all the courtyards and the lack of hallways for communicating through the rooms. On one courtyard, I found five pigeon nests. It's a quiet place.
