  • The time over and over again and still impressing, family likes. It's a bit gloomy, but it is worth...

  • This is a one star review, not because the museum is bad in any way, I just personally found it quite disturbing and regretted visiting it. Just my opinion!  more »
  • It's really interesting, Learning that all those people were alive one day and to relive their history was quite amazing and see the idiopathic conservation  more »

  • The interesting thing of the mummies is that they are completely natural. They didn't go through a mummification process like in Egypt. They were buried and something underground mummifies them. It's explicit and it even has mummified babies. That crossed the line.
  • Extremely Morbid. Couldn't eat for the entire rest of the day. Very very disturbing. Not for anyone with a weak stomach.
  • Well, I recommend this place because there is nothing like it I've ever seen. Mummified humans dressed in costumes?! It really doesn't get much weirder and cooler than this.
  • Incredible exibit of mummies here. Information in both English and Spanish. Expect a two hour line to get in the door. Once inside it isn't too crowded. Definitely worth visiting if you're in Guanajuato. The history a diversity of stories is very interesting.
  • This place is weird and cool at the same time, but I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, because it's morbid. If you're squeamish you might want to skip this place. It's a very rare type of museum - you should check it out if you can handle it!
