Interesting info on the Mayan City of T'ho and early Merida. Not a very big collection but worth the visit since its only a few blocks from the zocalo. Upstairs is a gallery featuring work from a local artist that I found pretty interesting.

I love this! You can see the history of Merida from ancient times to modern art. I like that it's not just archeology but also art and culture. Highly recommended especially if you speak Spanish

The city has taken the vitorian post office, which is pink and white on the exterior, and turned it into a repository for things from Merida. It is all in spanish, so unless you speak spanish, just enjoy the items that have been left to...More
