A must visit museum. Amazing variety of artifacts and the house and family who occupied it have an interesting history too. Lovely architecture and full value for money.

As a museum this house is so so, but for sheer spookiness it can't be beat! The two skeletons that you can see through a plexiglass covered opening in the floor really brought home the reality of the murder(s) that took place here. Raised the hair on the back of my neck. I'm glad we went....not something you see every... More

Didn't love it at all. It was pretty old, not perfectly maintaned. The lights should dimm when you entered in the room however the system was not working. The TV's used to present the crime plot were pretty old. Doesn't worth the visit!

It also has a nice lookout point on top where you can see... More

For those interested in history and decor this former private residence is a great place to see what life was like in Mexico in the mid 1800's.

This museum has all sorts of antique furniture in it, but none of it pertains to the murder mystery that happened in the home. The home itself is beautiful architecturally. The staff seem more intent on making you pay for things like your camera than showing the videos about the murder mystery.
