We had a local guide who told us wonderful stories about William Spratling and the beggining and consolidation of the silvercrafts in Taxco. He spent about 45 minutes telling us charming and interesting stories, it was worthwhile even if 50% was true!

Free to enter, with nothing of note to see. Most of the rooms were locked on all three floors and the staff on show weren't interested at all. Nothing in the walls explaining anything, poor showing.
