Museo Regional de Historia de Colima

Museum in Colima

This excellent museum in rooms off a central patio has an extensive collection of well-labeled artifacts spanning the region’s history, from ancient pottery to conquistadors’ armor and a 19th-century horse-drawn carriage. Don’t miss the ceramic xoloitzcuintles (Colima dogs) in room 12 or the walk-through mock tomb excavation next door.

There is also an interesting collection of clay figures that may depict pelota players.
