  • Amazing! I spent hours and hours there. You do not want to miss this while visiting San Luis Potosi. It is facinating and a great history lesson. Inexpensive and great photo opportunities!  more »

  • Its an awesome experience seeing the diferent types of masks throughout the region of Mexico. Architecture is very beautifup as well.
  • This is one of the best museums in town, it's a must, this place architecture is simply beautiful, there are around 1000 masks from different regions and ages in Mexico
  • Good museum, I would say it's different because there are masks to see, which is a little odd.
  • Great collection in a beautiful building, it self full of history.
  • An absolutely amazing place. Please stop by and spend an hour here. I promise it will be worth it. They have a very large collection of beautiful masks and rotate other exhibitions. When I was there they had a painting expo of José de Jesús Hernández Martínez called "Recuerdos de un sueño inquietante". Beautiful. Also, it is super cheap (just $20 Mexican) and they also sell masks for just about 600 Mexican pesos.
