Museo Comunitario de Mulegé


This former territorial prison was famed for allowing prisoners to roam free in town during the day, although the women inmates stayed to cook and clean. Now it holds a small collection of fairly mundane prison artifacts plus a mummified fox. Donations of M$20 are appreciated.
