The entry fee is well worth it considering you can include both Ripley's museum and this one in one ticket and get a discount.

This is the second time we have tracked down this museum in the heart of the centro. This time was to see the Dr. Lakra exhibition. It was worth the effort. Excellent exhibition of this artist's work well displayed in this very old building. The last exhibit we saw was of Daniel Lazama. Both artists live and work in DF... More
