They've presented the mummies in a special way - each mummy/ person giving her/ his introduction. So you see them as a person and can visualise how they would have been when they were alive. Touchy feely place

It was interesting to say the least. Just be open minded if you decide to go. Seeing it once is enough.

If you want to see real dead peeps, this could be your jam. I found the walk and the price to be worth it. Some bodies have, while strange, some English explanations. Hit the cemetery that is close for thematic day.

Not something I'd recommend for everyone, personally I didn't like it but for sure there are a few out there that would enjoy a dead people exhibition. It was just a visit to say I was there, I didn't like it.

I went there on June 16th and it was 56 pesos for adults. This place is actually attached to a cemetery which makes it a little more creepy. I only seen the cemetery because I walked to the museum, and when trying to find the museum I ended up at the entrance to the cemetery, which is open for you... More

We did not finished the view of mummies. We did not like the feeling of looking dead people in exhibition. The visitation of this place, was part of a tour.

Some of the other reviews made me chuckle a bit. It is called the "Mummy Museum," because it exhibits mummies (apparently that part is not obvious to some people). Many of the mummies that are shown here are very interesting and fascinating, but if you have no interest in mummies to begin with, then you may find yourself bored, disturbed,... More

First up the queue to get in was quite long and confusing as there seemed to be one line but in essence it was 2 so people just line jumped. The exhibits themselves show 40-60 corpses/mummies and in my opinion unless you have a specific interest it was a little let down. Of course people taking photos of themselves+children standing...

This place is awesome but at the same time creepy seeing all those dead mummies. All the mummies display have an interesting story. This place is said to be haunted too.

I was intrigued and open minded but during my visit I don't feel I learnt a great deal and not sure if I agree with how they are displaying the mummies. Don't think I would want that done with my body....
