Museo Zacatecano information
Zacatecas' former mint (Mexico's second-biggest in the 19th century) now houses the wonderful Museo Zacatecano. Spread over a number of rooms, 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 superb collection of Huichol art. Videos (all in Spanish) provide each sala's context.
