I loved gazing at the furniture, inlaid wood & ivory tables, china crystal, lamps, desks, painting etc The dining room would be perfect of entertaining the outlaws in style. This is a very quick tour often attached to the free walking tour of the Zocola or Plaza Grande.

Many pictures from the early 1900's showing family visits to the coast. Old, stately furnishings from around the world. Lovely!

This is a beautiful home with gardens, interior plazas, etc. It was owned by the one of the first founders of the city. The history is magnificent.

Furnished with Victorian & Edwardian furniture in the 3 rooms including stunning ceiling in the dining room. Heavily managed, no touching, clear guidance as to how to get around. Sometimes special exhibitions as well. Backpacks need to be left in entry room

The museum is located inside one of the most beautiful historic buildings that I saw in Merida, with such intricate carvings around the door frame and balcony on the second level and amazingly detailed architecture. I visited the museum... More
