Sunday afternoon in Agua's so let's go find about the History of Mexican "Day Of The Dead" and how they worship their family members that pass away. Easy to find, just a short walk from Plaza Patria. Paid the $20 each and grabbed a short...More

This is a very interesting museum. I found it to be fascinating, interesting and a little ghoulish. If you stay in the El Cento district this is a short walk. All the museums are very inexpensive.

Has interesting expositions, when I went there was a room dedicated to digital art that was really mind-blowing. Overall I think they have well-balanced expositions, things you can look at and things you can learn from/of. The "descent into the underworld" section was pretty lame,...More

A very interesting place. Death is definitely the theme . A good insight into the preoccupation with the devils.

If you want to know more about the very special Mexican traditions and believes around death, this is the perfect place and makes a very interesting and enlightening visit. They should work on the shop tough, it was quite disappointing.
