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!

The entrance was cheap, only 20 pesos and 10 for students/teachers. The masks were nice but wasn't really my thing, probably spent 15 minutes and left. The actual building itself was very nice though.

If you like art, and especially masks, take 45 min-1hr and enjoy this museum. Have been to other such museums; this one had some unusual ones!
