Cemetery and Museum of the Mummies of Celaya

Celaya

Although the city of Guanajuato could be considered mummies’ Mexican capital par excellence, Celaya isn’t far behind with a museum dedicated to them.

The Museo de las Momias de Celaya (Museum of the Mummies of Celaya) is the last home of 23 mummified bodies that date from different times and which were named according to the profession they practiced in life. His clothing is in almost immaculate condition.

Get to know “El Militar”, “La Bonita del Pueblo”, “La Catrina” or “El Chaparrito”, all of them with a legend that you’ll discover throughout your guided visit.

On one side of the museum is the 19th-century-built cemetery. This space, also known as “The City of Death”, is usually one of the great nighttime attractions when everything turns a bit gloomy to wander among its graves.

We recommend you attend one of the tours of about 90 minutes long that take place at sunset. The guides will reveal to you the famous people that lie in this graveyard.
