  • This rather retired from the Center since just is in the pantheon... But it is a must-see if you are in Guanajuato... Charge you for taking photos, but it's worth it... The mummies are quite well preserved, have them in special cabinets with modern systems for their care. The facilities are good, spacious, well walking them... You offer a journey where das cooperation volunteer, I advise you to drink it, is it worth much... I can only say that they must go!

  • Son una experiencia única, bien vale la pena por 60 pesos
  • 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.
  • Muy corto el recorrido
  • 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 :)
  • It's definitely an interesting place to go, the kind of museum you can't find everywhere. The tour is fast and there's not much to see apart from the mummies.
