Walk through time behind these walls. Lots of fun for the kids with 400 year old games, touch different displays, walk through the houses, see how the Spanish and native Americans lived.
Tip: They do give you a free bottle of water!

Excellent as usual. My 3 children age 5,3 and 1 and niece had a blast as well as the 10 adults.The guide provide great educational material. It is very refreshing to have a hands on museum to bring the children too. I highly recommend attending this museum.

We spent a couple of hours here and enjoyed it. The 2 guides were very informative, there were only 5 in the group all adults and I'm sure kids would enjoy trying out the old games, we did !! A bit disappointed that they didn't set fire to the canoe , heath and safety of course
