Museo de Arqueologia Ganot-Peschard reviews
Really cool, but could use some maintenance.
An interesting museum that didactically shows the history of the pre-Hispanic peoples who settled in what is now the territory of Durango, through their regions and cultures. It also has a section dedicated to understanding how the archaeological method is applied, as well as an excellent sample of ceramics, modified skulls and pieces of carved lithics of high quality. Admission only costs 10 pesos and discounted for teachers and children. It's worth it, don't miss it.
