The tour was free because we did a bus tour and it offered free admisssion to the Museo, but was not part of the bus tour. Good place to visit if you have a time to spare. Our tour guide was very good and informative....More

This Museum is small, $40 pesos to get in, but that includes a tour guide. The guide was good, funny, despite the serious topic mentioned in the Museum: Inquisition. He applied it to the city, which torturing devices were used in Zacatecas.

Took the tour at La Casa del Inquisidor where the guides walk you through the exhibition while explaining about the use of those evil, torture tools. The tour was fun and doesn't last long, not recommended to people with disabilities.

Even thou Inquisition is something "big" in Catholic Church, it doesn't seem too creepy when you walk into this museum. Very average, i would prefer Guanajuato's Mummy museum for that taste.

I would rate this museum as only average. Somehow I would have expected to be more horrified or grossed out. Maybe it's just because the museum shows the banality of evil...

The tour through the museum was pretty scary and fun. The information provided was very educative. The place was clean and everywhere you turned the walls were nicely decorated
