Museo de las Momias

Our town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is located in the state of Guanajuato. About 50 miles away is the capital of Guanajuato, also called Guanajuato. It is a charming college town, colorful and fun to visit.

Its most famous attraction is the Mummy Museum, or Museo de las Momias. It is famous throughout Mexico, mostly due to a low budget cult horror film as well as a TV series.

In the last few years, the museum has been renovated and updated. It is no longer as macabre as in years past, although vendors outside still sell the same skeleton adorned candies.

A recent article in the Atlantic described the writer's visit to the museum. 

Definitely worth a visit on your next trip to San Miguel!http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0208306/
