Oaxaca Culture Museum Tours

This beautifully restored monastery is connected to the Templo de Santo Domingo and houses one of the nation’s most impressive museums. Well-curated exhibits transport travelers through the history of Oaxaca, from ancient times to modern day. Visitors will learn not only about New World influences, but about pre-Hispanic traditions through halls lined with handmade crafts, herbal medicines and local costumes.

Perhaps the most impressive item in the Oaxaca Culture Museum is the Mixtec hoard from Tomb 7, which dates back to the 14th century. A rare collection of silver, jade and gold, which was discovered by Alfonso Caso in the early 1930s, showcases the ancient tradition of burying royalty among riches.

Practical Info

The museum is located in Alcala, southwest of El Llano Park. It is open from 10 a.m. until 6:15 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. All placards are in Spanish only, but travelers can rent an English audio guide for M$50.
