If you’ve ever felt curious about the sheltered life of nuns, El Museo de Las Conceptas offers an excellent opportunity to learn more. Located within the Convent of the Immaculate Conception, opened back in 1599, the centuries-old traditions of the nuns who lived here then and now come to life at the museum. You won't be able to see the nuns in person, and visiting the museum doesn’t give you access to the cloistered convent itself. Nevertheless, you can get a sense of the nuns' lifestyle by examining dioramas of their unadorned living quarters and primitive equipment.

  • This was an interesting place to visit even though I'm not Catholic. The building itself is beautiful and interesting. Some of the signs had information in English. I'm used to so many of the museums being free, so I was surprised it cost $3.50/adult and $1.50/child.
  • Nice place to visit ir you're catholic. I missed some informations in the rooms and objects.
