The MUSAM (Archaeological Museum of Mazatlán) originated in the convocation launched by the famous mazatleco Jose C. Valadez who wanted to form a museum of Mazatlán and for Mazatlán.

The initiative was taken by his descendant Miguel Valadez who considerably expanded the collection and from his trench as Official Chronicler of the city convinced the authorities of Mazatlán to make the dream of his illustrious ancestor become true.

His call did not echo; however, the initiative was taken by his descendant Miguel Valadez who considerably expanded the collection and from his trench as Official Chronicler of the city convinced the authorities of Mazatlán to make the dream of his illustrious ancestor become true. It was finally in 1989 (although on the commemorative plaque inside the museum it is reported that it was on June 29, 1984) and on November 8, 2001, it was entrusted with its custody to INAH.

The information contained in the museum’s rooms is a product of archaeological research that has been carried out in conjunction with information from the work of Isabel Kelly in 1932 and Stuart Scott between 1967 and 1973, that allowed the presentation of a proposal for the development of the human group that inhabited the south of Sinaloa from its early stages of occupation at the dawn of our era until the Spanish conquest in 1531, and even the recognition of the survival of certain pre-Hispanic traditions in modern Sinaloa. The enclosure is divided into four permanent exhibition halls, As well as a large room for temporary exhibitions, where cultural and academic events are held, such as lectures, book presentations, reading rooms, among others.
