4.6
#3 of 14 in Museums in San Miguel de Allende
Take a unique look into traditional Mexican culture through Bill LeVasseur's Mask Museum, an exhibition dedicated to traditional Mexican ceremonial masks. The museum features more than 500 masks collected over 25 years, and all masks have been used in indigenous dance ceremonies, verifying their authenticity. Learn about the teachings behind each mask through Bill's enthusiastic tours. Because it is a private collection displayed in a home, you'll need to call ahead to book an appointment. Some masks are even available to purchase. Put Mask Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our San Miguel de Allende trip itinerary planning app .
