This anthropology and natural history museum contains many well-preserved pieces of pottery dating from 5000 BC until the Spanish conquest, some of which were found at the excavation sites outside Parita. There are also replicas of huacas (golden objects placed with indigenous peoples at the time of burial) found on the peninsula, as well as photos and maps of archaeological sites.

On the museum’s 2nd floor you’ll find photos of Azuero residents, authentic folkloric costumes and religious artifacts (including the original bell of Chitré’s cathedral, which was cast in 1767). Signs are in Spanish only.
