After several trips to merida we finally stopped at this museum. A interesting look at the way the upper class lived in years past. Well worth the quick stop.

The place is very interesting to see as it shows living in XVII. However it takes less than 30 minutes to see, even when you take a moment to read descriptions and background information.

The Casa de Montejo is a private building that is a bank and a museum. The entry is free and you can visit a couple of rooms of this mansion. Deserves a visit 15 minutes are enough.
