I was with a youth tour and this was one of the points of interest. I personally enjoyed the history but it is really gruesome for many.

I've been here several times with student groups, it's interesting to see, kinda creepy, but worth a look.

Your enjoyment of any experience largely depends on 3 factors: your preferences, what you're expecting, and who you're with. That being said, I walked the entire city, taking in every sight, big or small. This is a small museum.

If you are interested in the gruesome reality of natural mummification & death this is an excellent place for you to visit. I warn those that are sensitive towards the loss of human life, especially babies, there are some exhibits you may find disturbing. I enjoyed reading about the lives of the various mummies and the stories that went with... More

I have always wanted to see this museum, first hand. I am glad I finally got the chance after traveling to Guanajuato for my great grandmother's birthday. Getting to the museum itself was not very hard, as the city has signs guiding you. Entrance fee was not expensive. Shows everything from babies, torture, violent death, and much more. The gift...

If you are hesitating whether to visit the Momias (Mummies), think no further! Just go there and have a unique experience. Yes, the mummies were real men, women and children who lived and ended their lives in Guanajuato. There is a register where they keep their particulars. Now, think of these as an unparalleled natural phenomenon of body conservation plus... More

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.
