Witness centuries of opulence at Museo Casa Montejo, a historical mansion in Merida's old town. Before its conversion to a museum in 2010, the 16th-century building was for generations a residence of the Montejo family, Spanish conquerors of the Yucatan Peninsula. Admire the well-preserved facade, ornately decorated with reliefs portraying conquistadors and members of the powerful family. Explore the interior, which houses period furniture and decorations in Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Rococo, and Victorian styles.

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.
