If you are heading to the Lacandona reserve or just returning, this is a must visit. This collection of work from archeologist, Frans Blom, and his wife, Trudy Blom, an anthropologist and photographer offers great, early insight into the culture of the Lacandona people. The space itself is beautiful with a garden in the back. Na-Bolom is also a hotel... 更多
I have been to this atmospheric museum twice now which offers an audiovisual (in Spanish) and fascinating displays of expedition and personal artifacts with explanations in English of the lives of Frans Blom and his wife Gertrube Duby-Blom in their original house. Directly across the road is a leafy cafe garden where you will find the ticket office.
I really liked the house because of it's impressive size. Unfortunately, the information given about the lives of the couple was very scarce. I expected more information and ended up asking the guy working at the reception many questions to fill my knowledge gaps. The entrance price is very low and reasonable though...

Preservation of history by two Europeans in a home/museum that holds indigenous history and artifacts. Learn the impact of colonialism on the indigenous peoples of the region. Rich photography, literature (library), artwork, imagery, and acts of preservation by people that cared.
This museum is a fab place to visit with a lot to see and housed in a beautiful building. There is also a café across the road, which is where you buy your tickets. As with most museums here, the exhibitions are mainly in Spanish but if you don't speak Spanish, you will still enjoy the articles on show.
Hidden in a beautiful old covent with a gem of a little chapel, the museum provides an emotional insight in the life of lacandones indigenous people, and the explorers who created this place. Ask to see the movie when you get at reception (ES/EN). It provides useful info to make the most of your visit.
I had heard from different sources about this place, so when I arrived and the place was pretty dusty and unkept it was a surprise. The story behind the place is interesting, but to the visitor not ver eye catching. There´s some cool pieces the founder recovered from the ruins he discovered.
