Museo Guadalupano (Virgin of Guadalupe Museum)

The Virgin of Guadalupe is the most revered and well-known religious icon in Mexico. Each year, millions of parishioners arrive at Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe to ask for miracles or thank her for making them happen, often leaving gifts in their wake.

This museum exhibits a small sample of these gifts. Although it may look like a warehouse or a parking lot, do not be fooled by the entrance. Head through the two long corridors that lead to the museum, and you’ll be rewarded with a glimpse of the unique collection sheltered inside.
