Overview

Visit Casa Museo Montes Molina while you are in Merida and admire beautiful art and history. The museum is a breathtaking mansion built around 1902 and purchased by the Montes Molina family 13 years later. It is furnished with the original furniture of that period, and the four generations of the family that have continued to occupy the house to the present, have kept it in optimum condition. The museum is open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm. You can enjoy a 40-minute guided visit with a bilingual guide and get to enjoy a great time here.

Interesting museum with excellent artifacts but not too big. Perfect for a couple of hours visit. Enjoyed learning about Mayan life and touring the mansion.

We enjoyed our tour of this traditional home of the wealthy class in the late 1800's and early 1900's.. The house is still used by the present owners on occasion. Tours are given in English or Spanish at different times. Very nice gift shop.
