Wonderful free old historical building. Nice people at the desk. Lots of nice stuff to see but not much time needed. Did I mention free? Must see when walking around the Zocalo.

Worth a look if you're in the Zócalo, which you will be at some point. Beautiful outer facade and inside some of the Montejo collection. More exciting are the photo exhibitions of Mexican life.

A nice, free museum that will give insight to how the upper class lived in Merida. Self-guided tours, some air-conditioned.

The original façade is much older than the rest of the building, but the furniture is elegant and well-preserved. It is on the main square and is well-worth the short time it takes to see it all.

Interesting very well kept exhibit. The rooms are set up as a high class hacienda would have looked. Staff open doors for you and ensure you keep within the marked walk ways. You ha to 'sign in' and they will insist on taking any water...More

Don't miss this collection of Merida & Yucatan history. Much about the preservation of Mayan language, art and history.
