Museo Del Estado (state Museum) - Museum Morelia - Mexico

The eclectic archaeological-anthropological collection of the Museo del Estado is housed in an 18th-century house replete with courtyards and odd little rooms full of historical Michoacán bric-a-brac dating from prehistory to modern times. At the front is a recreated 1868 apothecary with jars labeled "elixir jaborandi" and otherwise. Neat things include: stone dogs chiseled when mammoths trundled along; skull jewelry worn before the Spaniards arrived and ruined everything; and frilly ethnic costumes still worn today. The upstairs is partly boring; some of the maps there note exactly where carrots are grown in the state.
