Not for the faint of heart, but if you want to do something different...visit the Museo de las Momias (museum of the mummies) in<FONT COLOR=ORANGE><B> GUANAJUATO</FONT></B>. In the late 1800's, it was necessary to dig up the remains in the cemetary to make room for new ones. The authorities discovered that many were not skeletons, but mummies. This is due to the mineral content in the ground and the dry atmosphere combined. Over 100 mummies are displayed. This photo is an overview of Guanajuato.

othercontact: Admission is approximately $2.50
