Wonderful Experience!

Alfonso is a charming and knowlegable guide, and clearly knows and loves his history. He speaks English. Do not miss this museum!

As with most museums in Guanajuato, English translations are not provided, so in order to get much out of a visit to this museum, an ability to read some Spanish is useful. The museum itself provides a good overview of the history of the area - primarily in the form of pictures and documents and we felt that it was... More
