Positive: Mummies are cool.

Negative: The line to enter was 25-30 min since it's the most popular location in one of the most touristic cities in Mexico.
Even the exhibits are as crowded as a rush hour bus.

I loved it because I love mummies. If you don't - don't go there.

What a strange and troubling place! I suspect that the displaying of not-so-long-deceased relatives is a threat to ensure payment of annual burial ground fees.

Cost has gone up since 2008, when we last visited. IT was too crowded this time and seemed to short. Not for the faint of heart. Slightly gruesome but interesting just the same.

Not for the faint of heart, but interesting. Reflects Mexican fascination with the dead. Would not recommend for small children.

Perhaps somewhat morbid but still interesting.... The history of how it came to be and how those who have become the celebrities have lived on. ... Remind me to be cremated! Jaja
