Mask Museum, San Miguel de Allende

(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. See Mask Museum and all San Miguel de Allende has to offer by arranging your trip with our San Miguel de Allende trip itinerary planner.
