Museo del Origen

Museum in Mexcaltitán

This small but enchanting museum on the plaza offers info in Spanish on the history of museums, a small archaeological collection and pictures of ruins and petroglyphs. There's also a reproduction of a fascinating long scroll (the Códice Boturini), telling the story of the Aztec’s travels, with their initial departure from an island looking very much like Mexcaltitán.
