It has four permanent exhibition rooms. The first focuses on ‘Regional archeology’. This room exhibits the objects found in the Cueva de la Candelaria, mostly artifacts and instruments used by the Laguna tribes (Paoquis, Caviseros, Ahomanes, Anuopas, Irritalas, among others), as well as clothing and human remains. The second is ‘Central America’. It exhibits ceramic pieces from the Oaxaca area, the Gulf, the Mayan region, the West of Mexico and the Central Highlands. Next is the Licio Lagos Collection. It holds reproductions inspired by pre-Hispanic pieces from different Mesoamerican cultures, made by modern-day craftsmen and donated by the famous architect from Veracruz. Lastly is Ethnography. This exhibits clothing and objects belonging to groups from the states of Michoacán, Chiapas, Coahuila, Oaxaca and Guerrero.
