🗣️ Museum of Cultures of Oaxaca, Santo Domingo: Des avis

Expérience positive: En esta temporada están haciendo remodelaciones y tienen dos áreas grandes de salas cerradas. Las salas de los Presidentes Porfirio Díaz, Benito, y aledañas, no se pueden ver. Recomiendo verificar la disponibilidad del museo, el recorrido estuvo muy corto por la remodelación.

Expérience positive: Es maravilloso como en el siglo XVI se realizaban esas magníficas construcciones con ese grado de detalle... Bellísima arquitectura, increíbles plafones, comparables a los europeos (bueno, es que fueron diseñados por españoles y construidos por el pueblo zapoteca y mixteca). A las colecciones museografícas, les falta algo para estar a la altura del lugar. La atención de los empleados, deja mucho que desear, no son nada amables, desde el acceso hasta el final del recorrido.

Expérience fantastique: Recomiendo sincronizar tu visita al Jardín Etnobotánico ya que ambos se encuentran muy cerca (El tour por el jardín es de una hora aproximadamente, mientras que el Museo requiere de 1.5 a 2 hrs) Éste museo es impresionante, así como la historia detrás de el. Mucho que aprender y admirar tanto de sus salas de exposición así como la arquitectura


Expérience fantastique: Es un Bello Lugar altamente recomendable si te agrada el Arte y la Cultura, si vas a visitarlo, ve lo más temprano posible ya que mínimo te puedes llevar una 4 u o 5horas para que lo puedas disfrutar al máximo.

Expérience fantastique: El museo tiene piezas únicas para ver de diferentes épocas y la arquitecta es muy bonita. Parece que estás en otro lugar cuando te asomas por las ventanas, el jardín es muy bonito y del otro lado está la explanada y puedes ver calendas

Expérience fantastique: A good experience to visit on Oaxaca City, not much to see but the building is a great option to take detail of

Expérience fantastique: As of today, you can see all the Monte Alban Mixtec Tomb 7 gold artifacts (along with interactive displays), which are quite amazing and famous, as well as a large exhibit on the history of dogs and dog-art in Mexico and the hairless Xoloitzcuintle dog in particular, which arrived with the original natives. You can also wander through the halls and see the convent grounds, and take pics of surrounding area from upper floors. One of the top attractions in town (along with adjacent Cathedral) and absolutely worth a couple hours.

Expérience positive: As of July 29 2022 only one gallery of artifacts of actual culture is open. That displays artifacts from Monte Albany and is stunning. The ancient library was also open to the public, as were many . Spaces in the ex-convent in which the museum is housed but no displays of the cultures were open due to assessment that appropriate social distanced required by COVID rules could not be maintained. Also no access to the splendid botanic garden which could be seen from the windows. HOWEVER it has a fantastic bookstore with books about art, history, culture and more. Large selection of children's books on a wide range of topics. The only postcards we saw during 5 days in Oaxaca, though most are of Frida Kahlo.

Expérience fantastique: Humongous museum with an amazing collection of prehispanic and posthispanic heritage from mixtecan and zapotecan civilizations. Entrance fee of $75MXN ($4.00 USD) as of Dec. 2019 is definitely worth it.

Larry Rose 3 years ago

Expérience fantastique: A wonderful museum showcasing early Spanish Dominicans in Oaxaca and the indigenous cultures. If you have been to Mont Alban you must come here to see artifacts and jewelry from there.

Expérience fantastique: Great museum, very little English translation anywhere, but Google helped. It's very large, took about 2.5 hours to see everything. Drinks are not allowed inside.

Expérience fantastique: If you are in Oaxaca, you have to visit Museo de Las Culturas. It is a stunning museum with such interesting exhibits, plus the grounds are gorgeous. Entrance fee is 75 peso. The man at the front desk took a 200 peso bill from me and then only gave me 25 peso change. I'm not sure if it was a one off thing, but please do be aware. Luckily I speak Spanish and immediately corrected him, he put up half a fight, but gave me the correct change. Also as a bonus, the museum overlooks the Jardin Ethnobotánico. I honestly had better views from the museum than I did on the actual garden tour. Also, be sure to visit the Tumba 8 exhibit. Wow!

Expérience fantastique: The botanical garden tour is awesome..You could only go in there with their tour guide it’s a very tour . Very informative about every single plant from corn to squash to the trees and the cacti. They don’t let you walk around and you have to stay with the tour group but after the tour which is about an hour long you can walk around and take pictures

Expérience fantastique: We sadly had a very limited amount of time here and you could spend the whole day exploring here - it's incredible

Danny Quesnel 4 years ago

Expérience fantastique: What a great museum! It's really big and beautiful, multiple rooms to visit and some exteriors also. You can see a large portion of the botanical garden from the 2nd floors through the many point if views. Price is very decent at 75 pesos ( may be cheaper for locals and kids ) and it took me a little more that 2 hours to see it all. I highly recommend when in Oaxaca.

Josh Kirschner 4 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Amazing museum for pre-hispanic artefacts, especially those from the tomb at Monte Alban, as well the early colonial period. The exhibits are all housed in the massive and beautiful old monastery, with views overlooking the equally stunning botanical garden. Would suggest it for everyone's must-see list when visiting Oaxaca.

Expérience fantastique: If there is one place to visit in Oaxaca it is this museum. The irony here is that the museum is in the monestary of the Santo Domingo church which was built by the colonialists using the slave labour of the indigenous population. It is a magnificent space. The museum's explains the local history very well. Every corner is a picture. Be prepared to spend half a day or more here.

Expérience fantastique: The Museo de las Culturas was located right beside the Santo Domingo de Guzman Cathedral via its own entrance. The museum was large featuring many exhibits which were situated in various rooms inside this former monastery. The museum is focused on the Oaxaca culture, art and history. There were lots of ancient artifacts recovered from the surrounding areas in Oaxaca, which were very interesting to see. Unfortunately, the information placards in the museum were in Spanish-only so I wasn't able to understand a lot of it, but I still enjoyed exploring this museum, wandering into the various rooms, and checking out the exhibits. There were open-air windows throughout the museum with fantastic views overlooking the streets of Oaxaca as well as the incredible botanical gardens next door with so many amazing cacti and succulents. I didn't have time to visit the gardens, as they had a separate entrance fee and only scheduled tours at specific times during the day, which did not work with my schedule. The entrance fee was 70 pesos which was very reasonable. I spent around 2 to 2.5 hours exploring here. It was a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon and cool off from the heat outside. You are not allowed to take backpacks inside the museum, so I had to leave mine in a cubby behind the front desk. I just took my phone, camera, and wallet with me and felt safe leaving my backpack there. Everything worked out fine. Visited in November 2017.

Expérience fantastique: Oaxaca is one of the cultural capitals of Mexico, so one can only imagine the treasure trove that lies within the walls of this breathtaking museum. The newly revamped Tomb 7 exhibit is world class with English descriptions. This museum so enormous that it is difficult to tackle in a day. The entrance fee is 75 Pesos and the museum is closed in Monday’s

Expérience fantastique: Architecturally beautiful, well maintained building containing a permanent exhibition of important historical artifacts and temporary exhibitions & an incredible old library. Stunning views of the gardens/church through the beautiful open windows. A lovely few hours well spent in Oaxaca.

Expérience fantastique: Best museum in Oaxaca. Takes you through the entire history, diverse cultural backgrounds and impact of colonization to the local population. Great building as well!

Expérience fantastique: Make sure to include this beautiful Building in your schedule. Extensive collection of Pre-hespanic Art and memorabilia from many periods. Many galleries and wide rooms to roam through, Allow a minimum of 2 hours.

Bruce MacNeil 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Clearly. This is awesome. I am gobsmacked. Normally I shun museums and find them rather constraining and prefer to spend time simply wandering around and observing retail spaces and built-up areas of the modern population. But this Museum of oaxacan culture is beyond expectation. I highly recommend. The entrance is a bit hard to find but it is best to just ask around or ask one of the vendors at the stall outside the church. Even the church is worth visiting but it is reminiscent of the tragedy of Catholicism. The explanation in this Museum of the decimation of the info Tech Culture by the arrival of the spine Spanish is well worth considering. i

Byron Boyle 5 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Breathtaking building and good museum. Adult entrance is 70 pesos. You could spend a whole day going through all the exhibits, but you'd probably lose interest before you did because all the information is just in Spanish. So instead enjoy your surroundings, the views, and pick and choose which exhibits you want to learn about and don't try to see everything.

Expérience fantastique: The museum has a lot of history to offer, still has some contemporary features once in a while. The curator ship is nice and the place is well taken care off. They offer several discounts depending on the day, specially if you are Mexican.

Nikolaus Maack 6 years ago

Expérience fantastique: I consider this a part of the church. However, I guess they are two separate entities. Hire a tour guide. It's helpful, and then you can wander. Our guide charged 300 pesos. Talked with us for an hour. Beautiful building. Lots to see.
