The Museo Casa Montejo will educate you on a great deal of the history of the region. Completely fascinating. Looks like they still live there. A real find for history buffs and just curious travelers as well. Free is also a nice price.

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.
