Regional Museum of Anthropology and History of Baja California Sur



REVIEW

The Regional Museum of Anthropology and History of Baja California Sur was inaugurated in March of 1981. It has an area of 500 m2 and offers the visitor a tour that explains the evolution of Las Palmas culture through paleontological, archaeological and historic collections.
It has an important collection of fossils that allows us to understand the natural diversity that has existed in the Baja Californian peninsula since 60 million of years ago. The archaeological objects account for the presence of the first inhabitants, which, in the case of the Espiritu island, date back to about 40 thousand years.
The exhibition includes stones with inscriptions, books of the missions, local crafts, details of pearl diving and copper and gold mining, as well as weapons and objects from the time when Baja Californians defended their land against foreign invasions.
It has a hall for temporary exhibitions, a library and a bookstore. It offers guided visits.
