On Monday, July 3, the Mushi route of the Museum of History of Puerto Vallarta was inaugurated at Hidalgo Park. This exhibit will present 52 archeological pieces found in the municipality. The director of the museum, Karla Valeria Moreno Briones, announced that during this month there will be an itinerant museum truck called the Mushi route, which will travel through different parts of the city such as El Pitillal and La Lija, carrying this archeological exhibit.
General admission is 20 pesos, while for disabled persons, students and senior citizens it will be 10 pesos, and children under 10 years of age will be free. The museum will be open from Tuesday to Sunday, from nine in the morning to nine at night. According to Moreno Briones, this entrance fee is intended to cover the expenses of the truck, but it also contributes to disseminate the culture and history of the project.
It is important to point out that the truck started its activities last month, with a theme centered on the anniversary of Puerto Vallarta, since its transformation from a town to a city. Now, in July, the theme will be archeology, displaying information on the years 900 and 1200, as well as pieces found in the region.
On his part, archaeologist Jorge Morales mentioned that in this itinerant museum a catalog of important archaeological pieces of Puerto Vallarta will be presented. The catalog called “The Greatness of Chultepec” consists of 52 pieces, all of them coming from the municipality of Puerto Vallarta and presented by means of archeological drawing techniques. Morales, together with local architect Lalo Cibrian, worked on this work of art and illustration of the 52 pieces. Morales invited everyone to visit this exhibition and get to know both the pieces and the history of Puerto Vallarta.
After this exhibition, the traveling museum will address other themes such as sports, land and sea, charrería, art, cemeteries, pilgrimages, among others.
