MUSEUMS

Colima University Museum of Archaeology

It juts out the greatness of the pre Columbian peoples of western Mexico. 1800 archaeological objects are displayed in its four exhibition rooms, including processed metals and a collection referred to the historical evolution of the salt and dying industries in Manzanillo.

The tour begins in the Manzanillo room, with its outstanding jewels made of seashells, pottery and some artworks made of bone. There are also exhibitions depicting the process to produce lime, of pre Hispanic origins, and of the elements used in the dying industry.

The adjacent room has two levels dedicated to the State of Colima. There is a reproduction of a tiro tomb, a subterranean vault in which ornamented human remains were placed surrounded by offerings, standing out on the exhibition.

The visit concludes in the Mesoamerican room, full of archaeological objects, and in the Room of the Treasures, which dazzles for its little bells, utensils made of gold and jade, besides collars made of silver and seashells.
