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.

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
