Sunday afternoon in Agua's so let's go find about the History of Mexican "Day Of The Dead" and how they worship their family members that pass away. Easy to find, just a short walk from Plaza Patria. Paid the $20 each and grabbed a short...More

My main reason for visiting Aguascalientes was this museum, and it really disappointed me, because most of Mexico's more recent museums are really good. Maybe this happened because Aguascalientes does not have much of a connection to Day of the Dead, and it was just...More

This is a very interesting museum. I found it to be fascinating, interesting and a little ghoulish. If you stay in the El Cento district this is a short walk. All the museums are very inexpensive.

Has interesting expositions, when I went there was a room dedicated to digital art that was really mind-blowing. Overall I think they have well-balanced expositions, things you can look at and things you can learn from/of. The "descent into the underworld" section was pretty lame,...More

This wasn’t exactly what I expected. I thought there would be more about the older civilisations. However, it does show a broad history and there are some really interesting exhibits. I think it’s worth the trip. Only 20 pesos entry. Didn’t open on time.

A very interesting place. Death is definitely the theme . A good insight into the preoccupation with the devils.

If you want to know more about the very special Mexican traditions and believes around death, this is the perfect place and makes a very interesting and enlightening visit. They should work on the shop tough, it was quite disappointing.

It is a not so big museum with a different kind of exhibition of a very Mexican subject: The Death. The place is nice, deals with the death from several points of view but does not have an english translation. This is a problem because...More
