We learn that the earth is not easy giving away the silver. Some 50g on 1000kg of stones that are carried out of the mountain by children who could creep still deeper inside ... once upon a time in the west. Now we have technologies, and the silver goes to the US where it is blended to the required qualities than send back for the Mexican handcrofts.

This museum is closed but some of the items have been moved to a little store near the Cathedral. I was disappointed.

Lots of 'wow' factor to the museum. Silver sculpture created specifically for national competitions. Amazing craftmanship.
