Centro Cultural La Azotea - Museum Antigua - Guatemala

The Centro Cultural La Azotea is an excellent family friendly three-in-one coffee, music and costume museum. The exhibition explains how the coffee fruits of one tree are transformed into 40 cups of drinkable coffee in a very interactive way. The second part of the center is Casa k’ojom, a top class collection of traditional Mayan instruments, masks and paintings. The displays show the instruments in the context of the ceremonies in which they are used for, including a very interesting section on Maximon. The last exhibition is the Rincon of Sacatepéquez, a representation the Kaqchiquel villages surrounding Antigua. The displays portray the customs, life styles and brilliant costumes of these villages.
