Museo de las Culturas Afromestizas

Museum in Cuajinicuilapa

The Museo de las Culturas Afromestizas is a tribute to the history of African slaves in Mexico and, specifically, to local Afro-Mestizo culture. There are some interesting stories, sweet dioramas and a model slaving ship; all text is in Spanish. Behind the museum are three examples of casas redondas, the round houses typical of West Africa that were built around Cuaji until the 1960s. The museum is behind the basketball court on the main road in the town center.

Call for an appointment to visit the museum on Saturday or Sunday.
