“Very well designed exhibits made this worthwhile”

National Museum of Death

Attraction details
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Being from a country where death is considered quite taboo this museum I just had to visit. It was well designed and had a modern look to it. Although they only had things in Spanish (with no English or other common languages on the informative signs) it was still a great experience even if non-spanish speakers can only view, not read, the exhibits. If they had English signs than I would give this a full 5-stars. Various facinating things to see!

Wonderful collection on how different cultures treat death. Definately worth the visit. Very nicely collaborated museum. There is an elevator to all floors for those who have trouble with stairs.

Overwhelming array of death related art from pre-hispanic artifacts through to modern paintings, prints, figurines and esoterica. Not for everybody, but not at all morbid. Offers a window into the Mexican thinking about death.

The building itself is a feast, one of the oldest convents in the colony. Also the Aztec skull displayed is among only 7 in the world, and the colonial death, religious art collection is superb.
