  • The Museum has a beautiful architecture. The highlight is the Roman stones exposed rugs on the walls. A few sculptures.

  • The museum keeps you busy with a nice and spacious display of exhibits found in Merida. The explanations are easy to understand. In addition, the building housing the artifacts is also an impressive brick edifice.
  • Worth the trip since admission is included with other roman sights. However many artifacts do not have English translations.
  • Splendid, spacious, luminous, no crowded Museum. Worth not to be missed if you are going to Merida.
