  • A piece of the rich history of Zacatecas! Make the time to see this world class museum and connect to the history of Zacatecas. 
  • For my was the best that I met on our visit to Zacatecas, is a place that should not be left to go.

  • In this place you can find architecture in "ruins" where walking around transports you to another era, and can perceive its magic. In the exhibition, without a doubt the second Museum halls more big of masks you impresionaras with the quantity and quality of the same. Entering their gardens wake up your photographic eye to capture beautiful images.
