Museo Casa Galeano

Western Honduras

This museum is located in a beautiful, ancient colonial house with high ceilings, carved timber posts and delightful paint-chipped walls with floral designs. Its contents (faded photos, old coins) are pretty mediocre and labeling is only in Spanish. There are plans to improve the collection, however, so check out what's there!
