This was an ok trip for us because we were lucky and had our Spanish teacher there to explain everything to us, so we did learn a lot about Mayan culture. The video of the midwife and birth looked like it was from the mid 90s, and the English voice-over was awful. That being said, it was exceptionally interesting. We... 更多
I have been here several times over the past few years and although I found some of it informative and interesting this place could do so much better with a little work. In a strange way it does capture more of the region than most would believe as it is a bit run down and sort of thrown together "sloppy."... 更多
This could have been so good. The Chiapas region is the centre of indigenous Mayan culture and the ancient knowledge of illness, medical treatments and plants should be treasured. What you get instead is a dilapidated garden with medicinal plants and trees barely labelled, exhibit rooms that are poorly lit and captioned in Spanish (yes you can get a laminated... 更多
The walk to this museum is a little bit off piste but being with three others we carried on. Not sure I would have carried on on my own. When you qwalk in they put on this video that shows how the Mayans used medicine and chants whilst in labour. I found this particularly intresting as am a student midwife... 更多
We have visited this museum regularly with volunteers from our medical/dental mission. It is always fascinating. there is also a garden of herbal medicines.
Very disappointing museum. The only interesting thing was short video which was played there. No english descriptions for tourists, no plants in the garden, blocked toilets.
It is an interesting walk to get there, through definitely not a touristy part of town, a little closer to the real world of Chiapas. Please remind the person in charge at the museum to show you the video about the midwives. The exhibits are interesting. There is also a garden with medicinal plants and a shop with natural medicines... 更多
I highly recommend visiting this museum to learn about traditional Maya medicine. Not only do you learn about the different traditional healers but you also learn about the plants and trees they use for healing. A video of a midwife tending a traditional home birth of an indigenous family is very educational.
This museum is a little bit out of town. I did wonder if I was lost but eventually found it. Just keep walking, it's further than you think. There's not a lot here but there is information in a booklet in English and also some of the exhibits. The tableaux are a little creepy but if you want something a... 更多
