At the Museum of San Cristobal de las Casas (MUSAC) you will learn about the history of the region, its culture and traditions. Admire its Tuscan-style construction which is considered a symbol of the city's architecture.

Na Bolom Museum is a house that was initially built to be a seminary, it became the property of Frans Blom and Gertrude Duby, a couple of archaeologists who redesigned its spaces with ethnographic details and pre-Columbian items, giving a new life to the site; to turn it into a venue dedicated to the protection of the Lacandons, while also serving as a place for research and culture.

The Na Bolom Museum is also a residence for artists and actively participates in the protection of native peoples, education and integration of indigenous communities.

If there is a jewel that represents the people of Chiapas, it is amber. The gem, which is the result of a fossilized resin, has been worn by both men and women over the years, whether it is in charms, rings, bracelets or earrings; its peculiar color and the presence of plants or insects inside it are characteristic features that makes us identify it almost immediately. Discover its extraction process in the Amber Museum.

This place, that used to be the convent of La Merced, today exhibits an extraordinary collection of pieces made with this resin, which in a natural and almost mystical way has created enigmatic designs to be worn with pride.

At the museum, you will not only be able to admire these pieces and learn a little more about their history, but also be able to buy some of them, these artifacts have been meticulously made by master craftsmen from original resin previously found by experienced miners.
