This museum is, as one can imagine, a little spooky at first. Some of the bodies that were buried alive have horrific looks on their faces. But it really is fascinating how well preserved the bodies are (especially since they were naturally mummified.) There is an informational video in Spanish, but most of the name plates have descriptions in Spanish and English. Take time to read the stories how how some of these mummies came to be or how they died; it really is amazing.
At the end there is a separate room that is actually petrifying. It is basically people who met an unfortunate death or were tortured. This was the only time I was actually scared.
Overall, very cool to see. There were young kids here when I visited, but I personally think you are just asking for nightmare city bringing kids here.
Come on a week day to avoid lines. Admission is $55 pesos per person (about $5 USD). Technically, you're supposed to pay $20 pesos to take pictures, but no one would know if you didn't.
