San Lorenzo Giant Olmec Head Number Eight. One Of The First Objects That You See
When Entering The Museum. Museo de Antropologia, Jalapa, Mexico.

The Veracruz University's Museum Of Anthropology which is devoted to the archaeology of Veracruz is probably the best museum of the Olmec culture in Mexico.

We have visited many museums in the world and in our opinion this is one of the top museums in the world. It is built in what we would say is a textbook example of what a museum should be. It is spotlessly clean and up to date in every respect.

All of the exhibits are found by walking down a gentle slope onto a series of galaries and courtyards. The museum is wheelchair accessable and their are ramps onto each gallary. The gallaries are arranged from the oldest civilization to the most recent.

We will show pictures of exhibits in this museum that impressed us, but there are so very many exhibits that we can only place a few samples on our page. This is a museum that you must visit to appreciate. Plan to spend a day there if you can.

We recommend this museum if you really enjoy the Olmec culture since seven of the large Olmec heads are in this museum including the largest head from southern Veracruz which was found in San Lorenzo. Another interesting Olmec head from San Lorenzo is pocked full of holes in what looks like a deliberate attempt to mutilate the head when San Lorenzo fell from power.

Our only criticism of the museum would be that the bookstore clerks and resturant workers were not very service oriented toward their customers. It is too bad, because we may have purchased some books if the clerks would have been helpful. We noticed several people who would have made purchases but they walked away in frustration. The same could be said for the resturant.

We visited this museum on January 18, 2004 and all of our photos on this page were taken on that date.

A great place to stay when visiting the Veracruz University's Museum Of Anthropology in Jalapa is the brand new Crowne Plaza Hotel XALAPA, VER; AV. RUIZ CORTINES 912 XALAPA, 91010 MEXICO

The Crowne Plaza Xalapa Hotel is the only 5 star luxury hotel in the City ideal for business and pleasure.

The Crowne Plaza Xalapa Hotel is a modern style hotel offering full services in the city.

It is located at the exit from the Mexico City highway, two blocks from Secretaria de Finanzas, only 10 minutes from Down Town, 15 minutes from Plaza Animas and The newest Plaza Americas

Only 20 minutes from Coatepec and 40 minutes from Jalcomulco where you can enjoy Rafting, or Rapeling in the Pescados river Level II and III.

It is within walking distance of the Anthropology Museum and the Centro de Especialidades Medicas

We have links on this page that will connect you with the Crowne Plaza Xalapa Hotel.

You can fly into Jalapa by flying into the General Heriberto Jara International Airport or Veracruz International Airport (IATA: VER, ICAO: MMVR) which is an international airport located at Veracruz, Veracruz, Mexico. It handles national and international air traffic for the city of Veracruz. Then you can fly from there to the small airport at Jalapa.

The city of Xalapa is served by the small, El Lencero Airport, located 15 minutes by road from the city. The airlines that arrive at the city include Aeromar, Aeroméxico and Mexicana.

There is also bus service from Veracruz to Jalapa.

We suggest getting a hotel in Jalapa and then letting them arrange either a car or a tour of Jalapa. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Mexico. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!

There are hotels and motels in the area, and if you need a place to stay; Priceline.com can arrange that for you. In fact, we think they are the best way to do it!

We have personally, booked flights, hotels, and vacations, through Priceline.com and we can highly recommend them. Their website is very easy to use!

We have some links to Priceline.com on this page, since they can arrange all of your air flights, hotels and car.
