Wonderful free old historical building. Nice people at the desk. Lots of nice stuff to see but not much time needed. Did I mention free? Must see when walking around the Zocalo.

Worth a look if you're in the Zócalo, which you will be at some point. Beautiful outer facade and inside some of the Montejo collection. More exciting are the photo exhibitions of Mexican life.

A nice, free museum that will give insight to how the upper class lived in Merida. Self-guided tours, some air-conditioned.

The original façade is much older than the rest of the building, but the furniture is elegant and well-preserved. It is on the main square and is well-worth the short time it takes to see it all.

Don't miss this collection of Merida & Yucatan history. Much about the preservation of Mayan language, art and history.

I recommend that you take the walking tour (free) google it or check out my review for the “free” tour in Merida, get a little background / history of the home. It is helpful prior to touring this lovely home. Gorgeous architecture and furnishings!

Free tour of the first colonial home in Merida. Beautiful period furnishings and murals. Only takes about 40 minutes and is well worth the time. (It has AC so it's a good place to cool off also.
