Well, it turned out that I had missed the large and rather nice museum of Oaxaca in a lovely former monastery. My excuse is that I mistook the entrance for part of the next door church. Luckily, as the fifteen hour overnight bus to my next destination departed at 5pm, I had plenty of time to visit it just before leaving town.
The displays are housed on the first floor in what were formerly the monks’ cells and dormitories. The were off long corridors ranged around couryards and the main cloister.
The highlight for me was the large display of grave goods excavated from the Monte Alban site,
and included some very finely made gold and silver pieces,
and these simple but lovely alabaster bowls.
