  • Well, I suppose if someone likes to view "disinterred mummies," then this is your place. It was rather morbid, in my humble opinion. We didn't really like seeing the mummified babies, old people, youn...  more »
  • Me decepcionó mucho este museo. Para ser uno de los puntos principales a visitar en Guanajuato está un tanto descuidado, fui en temporada baja y no habia guías. Las momias ciertamente son impresionant...  more »
  • It's really gruesome. I felt a quite sick and I'm a doctor. Suggest reading about it on Wikipedia before you get there if you're English speaking, as there is no explanation when you get there (only a...  more »

  • The mummy museum is a must if you're in Guanajuato. That being said, the line tends to get pretty long on the weekends so if you do not want to wait then go early in the morning. The ticket price is between $2.50-$3.00 American. Inside you get to watch a short film and are brought in in groups of 20-30 with a guide. It's all in Spanish but each mummy has a story and a display card that has the English version on it. It is way cool to see and find out some history on the mummies and how they got mummified!
  • The history of how the mummies have been found to the history of each corpse is very interesting. There is a tour guide who will walk you through each section and explain things to you. Also the tour is maybe 20 minutes long. Once the tour is complete, there are small stores outside to buy gifts and crafts. Excellent experience!
  • VERY SPOOKY PLACE BUT EDUCATING AT THE SAME TIME , AMAZING TO KNOW AND BE PART OF THE HISTORY MOMIAS DE GUANAJUATO.
  • I have no idea what I think of this place. Creepy, interesting, exploitive? It shows mummified remains of people buried in last 150 years. Entrance fee is 56 pesos. There is camera fee nobody pays, signs saying no flash photography which is wholly ignored. For most mummies you can see the expression on their face in their final seconds. There is 1 part dedicated to children that I found tough. Issue I guess is this none of these people donated their bodies to this. Would you like to be displayed like this? Yet in saying that if they were 3000 years old I don't think I would mind. If "easily offended" I recommend against but if you think photos are cool check it out.
  • If you´ve never seen a mummy and are curious (my case), it´s a good experience. Not a big deal though, just a few dead people that were found naturally mummified a long time ago :)
