The title museum may be a little misleading since it is quite small. My boyfriend and I took about 15 minutes to walk around and read all the information and watch the videos. The tasting is really what we went there for. There are several different tiers of tasting you can choose and since the highest level of tequila is... More

Like other people said this was mostly a tasting. It was still really informative. It was nice to actually taste the different Tequilas and learn about the process of making tequilas from the Agave plant. Plus you learn about aging the tequila in charred barrels. They mentioned that with some tequilas you paid for the fancy bottles and that Jose... More

How does this place not have more negative reviews?! This "museum" is nothing more than a premium tasting bar in the middle of a store selling very cheap souvenirs. It is hard to find in the mall on the second floor and the obscene prices for the tasting don't help. They advertise more bottles of tequila than anywhere else in... More

First of all this place is really hard to find. It's on the second floor of the Liverpool mall, and tucked inside of a souvenir shop. It's really not a bad stop if you're in the mall, I wouldn't go out of my way to see this museum though. The tour however, was free of charge and the tour guide... More

I went with my partner to the Museo Sensorial del Tequila hoping that I would be able to determine which type of tequila I would enjoy the most. Mission accomplished. Very fun and informative, I highly recommend it. The price is about $16-17 per person for the premium tasting. It is a little difficult to find. Look up its exact... More

I walked through here after eating at the neighboring Tequilla Grille restaurant, which I would highly not recommend. There are parts of this place that is kind of cool and interesting if you are into tequila. I think that it is just one big souvenir shop trap to get your money. A lot of trinkets and your typical souvenirs that... More

There are several other tequila museums right in the same area and it was difficult to find the correct one because some people have reviewed this spot (Museo Sensorial), but were actually at the other place. The one you're looking for is inside the store, La Europea. The tour was great- really informative and interactive. Truly is a sensory experience-... More

Louis, our tour guide was very informative. The welcome drinks were very good! Tour lasted no more than 30 minutes but we learned a lot about the making of Tequila and discovered which kind that we prefer!

We're margarita drinkers and didn't know squat about good tequila until the wonderful discovery and tasting experience we had with Gustavo. The museo is inside the La Europea store and we paid 220 pesos (about $17.50 USD) to do the top tier tasting. Gustavo is the director of the museum and was our guide as we learned the history, tequila-making... More

We were staying at a hotel just up the road, in the Hotel Zone, and had passed by this restaurant several times. It is located across from the Kulkulcan Plaza shopping mall. There are many expensive restaurants for tourists in the hotel zone, but unless the restaurant has something special to offer, I prefer to eat at the hotel. We... More
