I was very impressed by this museum. They have an excellent collection and it was very easy to see
things. The displays were all in Spanish.

Per Wikipedia: The Museo de Antropología de Xalapa is an anthropological museum in the city of Xalapa,
in the state of Veracruz in eastern Mexico.

The museum houses the largest collection of artifacts from Mexican Gulf Coast cultures such as the Olmec,
the Huastec and the Totonac with more than 25,000 pieces. The most notable pieces in the museum are the
giant Olmec heads and the smaller Totonac ones, which are called "caritas sonrientes" (little smiling faces) in
Spanish. The museum also contains a 40,000 sq. meter garden.

Some of the pieces in the museum date back to the Early Pre-Classic Period from 1300 BC -900 BC.
