Visit Casa Museo Montes Molina while you are in Merida and admire beautiful art and history. The museum is a breathtaking mansion built around 1902 and purchased by the Montes Molina family 13 years later. It is furnished with the original furniture of that period, and the four generations of the family that have continued to occupy the house to the present, have kept it in optimum condition. The museum is open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm. You can enjoy a 40-minute guided visit with a bilingual guide and get to enjoy a great time here.

We had a very good & informative Tour in English.. The building & windows are something from the past..to be cherished & kept safe.. We understand there is a relative who still comes to the home & stays here while in Merida & eats downstairs with the employees.. What a wonderful venue for a wedding..

If you want to see how life was back in the day of the Hacienda owners, this is a beautifully maintained and restored example. The current owners are still one of the original owners. Our guide was very informative and gave us plenty of time to look around and enjoy the splendor of the house. There are many houses on... More

Many homes or haciendas that turn into museums have been stripped of all the worthwhile goods while they stayed empty before turning into museums or galleries or hotels. In this case, the 84 year old owner still visits the museum about 3 times a year and stays in one of the rooms. Everything you see here actually belonged to the... More

If you want to experience what wealth bought in historic Merida, visit this home. All the furnishings are original, from Baccarat crystal chandeliers to Murano glass fixtures. This is just one of the many elegant homes lining Paseo Montejo. The tour takes about one hour and you will visit every room in the house. The owner, a descendant of the... More

This beautiful colonial mansion captures the extravagance of the "green gold" era in its design and furnishings. My favorite pieces were the rosewood Steinway baby grand piano and the murano chandeliers and I loved the telavera tiles in the bathrooms, the italian marble floors and the exquisite stained glass patio doors from the dining room to the patio.
