Sto. Domingo Cultural Center - The Regional Museum

The museum occupies what was once a Dominican convent. The building dates from the sixteenth century and is one of the most important architectural and artistic structures built in New Spain.

The museum has an excellent collection of artifacts from the Zapotec and Mixtec cultures, including the fabulous treasure found in Tomb 7 on Monte Albán, as well as rooms devoted to the ethnography and history of Oaxaca.
