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

This wasn’t exactly what I expected. I thought there would be more about the older civilisations. However, it does show a broad history and there are some really interesting exhibits. I think it’s worth the trip. Only 20 pesos entry. Didn’t open on time.

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.

It is a not so big museum with a different kind of exhibition of a very Mexican subject: The Death. The place is nice, deals with the death from several points of view but does not have an english translation. This is a problem because...More

I thought the place was going to be morbid like the mummy museum in Guanajuato, but this museum is actually pretty interesting focusing on the culture around death instead of actual dead people. There are many interesting exhibits of how Latin cultures depict death. There...More

A small museum downtown. A must see when visiting Aguascalientes. A very unusual collection about burial customs, old-fashion custom of photographing dead relatives, and other art collections centered on death and dying. A unique nod to the home of Day of the Dead art icon,...More

I learned a lot at this museum, and I would have stayed there so much longer as there is so much to see! I loved that there was a lot to read about the history of Mexico and how the way people view death changed...More

I have been to 24 states and this place is just plan nasty. I wish I had not gone. I would not recommend that you go.
