Museo de Trajes Regionales Sergio Castro
Anyone who is entranced with Chiapas’s indigenous culture will enjoy a visit to the Museum of Regional Dress (Calle Guadalupe Victoria at Av. 12 de Octubre, tel. 967/678-4289, by appointment only, US$3), a private collection of local resident Sergio Castro Martínez. Well-versed in the cultural history of Chiapas, Sr. Castro explains the cohesive role that clothes play in each village, adding a few anecdotes and legends along the way. English and French are spoken.
