Lonely Planet review
About 100m south of Plazuela de Santo Domingo is the recently renovated, formerly Zacatecas' mint (Mexico's second-biggest) in the 19th century. Since 2010, it has housed the Museo Zacatecano. Spread over a number of halls and rooms on different levels, this contemporary museum exhibits a weird mix of all things zacatecano, from pre-Hispanic objects to the recreated rooms of a popular composer. Unfortunately, the first few salas are text-heavy information boards (in Spanish). The highlight – in the last halls – is the wonderful collection of Huichol art. Videos (all in Spanish) provide each sala's context.
