“As creepy as I expected!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I liked everything, except the lady who got buried alive. First you see a video, then, you go and see this mummies face to face! it is very creepy and fascinating at the same time. The guide explained everything in detail, I liked him a lot. I mean , you really get up close and personal with these mummies, I learned a few things about corpses.

“Groovy”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Who doesn't love mummies? Very well done. A must do in Guanajuato. I liked the mummies. I didn't like the smelly guy in front of me. How much do I have to type for this to accept my review?

“Recent Mummies”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Mummies from poor people recently exhumed from nearby cemetery. Not worth the entrance fee or time. A tourist trap. Would have been far more interesting seeing less and if they were ancient mummies.

“Lots of Mummies”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

This was kind of a let down. It was the most expensive museum (52 pesos) I visited during my recent trip in Mexico for 2 weeks. Not much in the way of explanation. Just lots of mummies displayed in glass cases in various states of decay. Not a must see unless you're really into mummies.

If you come to guanajuato & don't visit this museum, it's like you've never been here. Morbidly fascinating this is a landmark of this town. A Must see!
