The Casa de Montejo is a private building that is a bank and a museum. The entry is free and you can visit a couple of rooms of this mansion. Deserves a visit 15 minutes are enough.

Adjacent to the grand plaza in Merida, this museum is free and a pleasant 30-minute diversion. It is beautifully maintained, and furnished in 19th century splendor. Part of the museum is dedicated to temporary art exhibitions.
