Mexican culture really has a fascination with death and the macabre. So it only seems reasonable that if it was discovered, while cemeteries were being expanded during a cholera outbreak in the 1800s, that the soil and climate in Guanajuato was a bit conducive to the mummification process, that those corpses should be displayed in a museum, right? Right?

Well, that’s what you get with El Museo De Las Momias. I was interested in checking things out and when Francisca also wanted to go, the two of us grabbed a taxi along with DiploBoy and headed to the tourist attraction. It was all quite surreal and a bit disturbing, but I’m glad we paid the museum a visit.
