Museo Regional de Antropología information
The massive Palacio Cantón houses the Museo Regional de Antropología, an anthropology museum with temporary exhibits focusing primarily on culture and history in the Yucatán (ie Maya customs), although some exhibits will occasionally offer a broader look at other regions of Mexico. Construction of the mansion lasted from 1909 to 1911.
Its owner, General Francisco Cantón Rosado (1833–1917), lived here for only six years before his death. The Palacio’s splendor and pretension make it a fitting symbol of the grand aspirations of Mérida’s elite during the last years of the Porfiriato – the period from 1876 to 1911 when Porfirio Díaz held despotic sway over Mexico.
