The Altos de Chiapas Museum opened in 1988, in a 17th century building that used to be a convent. The cultural development of the region is represented here, and there is a shop called Sna Jolobil, where the regional weaving  tradition is exhibited. The collection includes prehispanic archaeological findings and historical objects from the 19th century, as well as religious art.
