Some see an irony in a museum by the empire that destroyed ancient and advanced cultures, and now boasts about the achievements of exactly those cultures. It has to be said that next to the impressive displays of archeological and ethnographic findings, there is an impressive survey of the complicated past and the history of Spain and the tribes that ruled America for many years.
In the museum there are many views of the different cultures and tribes of America. Over 2,500 items are displayed in the two floors of the museum, with information, models, maps, and different orienting factors. The division and display here include the historical aspect, geographical, religious, artistic, and cultural.
Some of the displayed items are very impressive. From the painting "Conquering of Mexico" from the 17th century, and the cultural treasures of Los Quimbayas, that the Spanish took from Columbia. The stone plates of the Maya, and the manuscript of Cortesano, that is considered a rare manuscript from the Maya culture, and a highly important historical item.
