Casa del Alabado

Casa del Alabado Review

With a collection of pieces that date back to 4,000 years ago, this private museum of Pre-Colombian art is organized in a non-traditional manner. Instead of following time periods, visitors explore the former colonial mansion by themes such as ancestors and shamans; objects are also grouped by material, as varied as gold, stone, shell, and ceramics. There are audio guides available for an extra $2 and a modest gift shop plus special temporary exhibits, such as amulets.
