I’m not easily creeped out, but gaping at a bunch of dead bodies (mummies is a stretch) isn’t my idea of entertainment. Guanajuato has so much beauty and culture to offer. Don’t waste your time with this tourist trap.

Mummies were plentiful and not wrapped like Egyptian mummies. They included babies to elderly. At the end of the tour, you're provided a photo op standing in a coffin next to a mummie in a coffin. Lots of people were doing it. It is a...More

These are not mummies, in that these are not people who signed up to be mummified. These were poor people buried in above-ground niches in a paupers cemetery from the 1880's to the 1950's. Then a tax was placed on permanent burials and the families...More

As creepy as this may be to some, going to Guanajuato and visiting the mummies is an experience you can't miss. The ones that are there, are well preserved and behind glass. (As a preteen heard stories of the mummies bein displayed unprotected only a...More

We visited this place hoping to learn about the history of the mummies, the process in which they're mummified etc, but nothing. The tour is in Spanish, so not ideal for English speakers. None of the bodies are wrapped, but their detail is amazing, lots...More

Since the mummies are something Guanajuato is known for it really is worth stopping here for something completely unique. I probably won't go here a second time and I really wish the tour would have had and English option but you really don't need to...More

I would advise people to read the reason this museum exists before visiting. These are people mainly from the 1900's. We went on a saturday and the line was extremely long, maybe a 45 minute wait. It is difficult to linger at exhibits are there...More

It was like I walked into the set of the Walking Dead. I had no idea that the mummies were modern era people that died in the area. I suggest researching the story of the museum a little before you visit to give you perspective....More

Everyone should visit at least once. It really helps one understand the culture in Mexico as it relates to death. I didn't truly understand Día de Los Muertos until I visited this museum.
