Anyone going to Antigua Guatemala definitely needs to visit the two museums inside the Hotel Casa Santo Domingo. The Hotel Casa Santo Domingo offers a museum of Spanish colonial art as well as a museum of Classic Maya art.
Andrea and Nicholas spent eight days as guest of the Hotel Casa Santo Domingo over the Christmas holidays. During this time they photographed the hotel inside and outside as well as the Maya vases. All the vases were rolled out digitally. Samples will be presented over the next several months.This museum also includes a good selection of Teotihuacan-related art of Tiquisate.
The hotel itself is pictured on www.maya-art-books.org in the growing section on hotels of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and Mexico.
This museum is situated within the ruins of the Spanish colonial monestery of Santo Domingo.This entire Spanish colonial ruin has been excavated and partially restored as the Hotel Casa Santo Domingo. The resulting hotel is now the largest and best hotel in Antigua.We recommend you visit the two museums in this hotel, the archaelogy museum and also the museum of Spanish colonial art. The museum of colonial art is pictured on www.maya-art-books.org.
Both museums are open to the public. Admission is 10 quetzales, just over a dollar.
