We decided to try it for videos... it is a good tour; tour guys are very friendly and know how to brake the ice. It is an accord sensation once you are inside and listening all the info.

How to review this place? First, there are very few opportunities out there in the world to see something like this that depicts the atrocities committed in the name of the Catholic church and God. From that perspective, if you have the stomach for it,...More

Before visiting this museum, I had no idea that the Spanish Inquisition operated this "outpost" of torture for 300 years beginning around 1520. There are several rooms and the guide we had was well informed and respectful, so I don't understand reviews that there was...More

It was the worst place I visited here in Guanajuato, it was just one room with supposed original torture instruments which you can't really see and the guides were really rude.

It's definitely not worth it, and the tour guides make very unpleasant jokes about the tortures. It barely has any genuine pieces, the tour guides evidently don't know much about history because they give very imprecise or wrong information. I was truly disappointed.

Must go here. It is rich in history. Very fun to go here. I loved the explanations and the narrations. We went in a semi big group and it was a blast to see everything and travel through it.

It has few historical pieces, the best is the students that are conducting the tours, it last around 20 min, including the tip for the guide it is around $3 usd. As part of a paid tour is ok, driving 20 min on your own...More
