Palacio de los Capitanes will be Museo de Santiago

New Home for the Original Mermaids by Rudy Girón

Yes Eric, Palacio de los Capitanes will be the new building for Museo de Santiago, which is the city and departamento’s museum. Museo de Armas de Santiago was, and still is for now, located next to the Municipal government offices; perhaps on the same building and that’s where the original mermaids were on display.

The night of the Antigua Guatemala Brand launching event I learned from the general director of museums of Guatemala that Palacio de los Capitanes (Palace of the Captains) will be the new location for Museo de Santiago, which will open its door to the public on May 18. Some of you may remember that May 18th is the International Museums Day; as always, follow the white rabbit. Ah… life is good in La Antigua Guatemala!

Remember, you heard it first at AntiguaDailyPhoto!

    I was hoping you were going to say exactly that ! Having seen the Museo de Santiago on my last visit to La Antigua, then seeing your fotos of the Palacio de los Capitanes, they looked like a perfect match. Que bueno !
    A visit to el Palacio, a cappucino from Cafe Condessa, and an afternoon watching the world go by in front of la fuente de las sirenas…sounds like a perfect day to me. Life is good !

    • @Eric, your last two lines encapsulate perfectly what I am trying to convey every day: good coffee, watching the world go by in front of a fountain in Parque Central… that’s it, Life is good! 😉
