Lonely Planet review

A storehouse of magnificent sacred art, this museum occupies a former school run by the Carmelite order. The collection includes eight oils by Mexican master Cristóbal de Villalpando; however, the big draw is the collection of a dozen mummies in the crypt. Thought to be the bodies of 17th-century benefactors of the order, they were uncovered during the revolution by Zapatistas looking for buried treasure.
