Today you can visit it, it's interesting to see the Victorian and neo rococo decoration of the rich bourgeois of the time.
It's free. If you see a line, it's for using the ATMs. (Most of the building is converted to a bank now). Just go in and check your bags. The guards were super sweet and helpful. The art was a great collection and it was cool to learn a little about the colonialist history by walking through the home.
Great museum in center of Merida, across main square and park. If you love hispano architecture and style its place for you. You can see many different rooms with antiques and all is for free! Must visit in Merida!
