Description

Packed full of interesting artifacts relating to North and South America's indigenous cultures, most of the pieces on display at this museum were brought to Spain between the 16th and 17th Centuries. Outstanding collections include the 17th-century Mexican pottery, the Quimbayas Treasure, Paracas Mummy, shell paintings of the conquest of Mexico, North American Indian artifacts, and the results of 18th-century scientific expeditions. There are regular temporary exhibitions and organized educational weekend workshops for children. This museum has been open since 1965 in a colonial-style mansion close to the Faro de Madrid (Lighthouse).
