  • A beautiful museum, dedicated to different aspects of Mexican and other cultures from around the world. Death was a common theme in one of the areas and it gave me a greater insight into how different people respond to death as well as the celebration of 'Day of the Dead' in Mexico. Admission is free and there's toilets inside. So make the most of your experience.
  • Oh, how I would love to have one of this at my home city ... 😐 Great place for the locals to visit and learn about other cultures in the world and their history. Had the opportunity to see replicas of Egyptian sculptures in an exhibition about ancient age as well as Mesopotâmia, Greece and Rome. Well done!
