This is a great museum housed in a beautiful old mansion. Lots of masks, many from other countries. Cost is 20 pesos, which is nothing. Well worth a visit.

Amazing! I spent hours and hours there. You do not want to miss this while visiting San Luis Potosi. It is facinating and a great history lesson. Inexpensive and great photo opportunities!
