  • Great experience to see the history of the mummies of Guanajuato..its not too big of a place but great place for a piece of history of Guanajuato...forgot how much was the entrance but its really cheap...maybe $3-4 ..as soon as you get there you will get bombarded from locals selling u some souvenirs..there just trying to make a living...just tell them you'll get something after you exit and they will leave you alone...however I do recommend to buy from them instead of the little shops because you will get a deal..I gave the man like 50 pesos which is like $2.50 in American dollars but I got like 4 very nice souvenirs..very nice well made souvenirs..the same souvenirs in the US would of cost like $25-30 dollars .. and if u want to go all out.. with $5 dollars or 100 pesos you will have souvenirs for days and you'll make their day... lastly I will highly recommend to get a tour or a guide.. save yourself a headache
