Free access. You can see how the life in the ancient Merida was. Old furniture is shown here. Montejo was the conqueror of the Yucatan Peninsula and this house beloged to him and his family.

If you are interested in fashion or fibre arts, the Beatriz Russek display is a true pleasure. At no charge, you might want to visit more than once. Ends Feb. 2018. The mansion is delightful with its courtyard and period rooms. Good location for atm’s.

Free museum with an interesting interior. only takes about 30 minutes to do everything, but worth the time just to be in the space. You will need to check in your bag/backpack before you go in.

Sad times. Rich Spanish conqueror. Times show how the Mayan and Yucatan people fell to this type of righteousness. I think all should enter and walkout with the look of how could We have let this happen. This is a place that history should never...More
