Very nice museum well worth the $40 Pesos entry fee. A tribute to Spratling who ment so much to Taxco and the people who live here. Modern displays of photographs, artifacts, and silver pieces. Mostly in Spanish only.

Behind the Parroquia. Inconspicuous, but well worth the 40 pesos. Good sample of Spratling's work and his history. However signage is in Spanish only.

Guillermo Spratling did much to develop the art and commerce of silver in Taxco, and many of his original designs are displayed here. The museum is well-organized and very impressive. Go there.
