Museums in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo
La Costa Grande is the name for the expanse of Guerrero coastline that encompasses both Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and Acapulco. The Museum is located in Zihuatanejo at the east end of the Paseo del Pescador facing the town beach.
Surrounding a central patio, six exhibit rooms illustrate human evolution from prehistoric to pre-Hispanic eras, according to findings from 54 archeological sites and settlements discovered nearby and elsewhere along the Costa Grande.
A remarkable array of artifacts, utensils, stone carvings, jewelry, and figurines of ceramic, clay, seashells and obsidian, as well as illustrative murals and maps, attest to Olmec, Teotihuacan, Tarascan and Mexica (Aztec) presence and influences in this coastal region.
Open 10 am to 6 pm daily except Mondays.
