Sorry to report that beyond a good travelling exhibit of photos from the 1910 revolution, not much is here to fill three stories. Extensive and interesting dioramas go unremarked upon. An intriguing history of 20th Century politics in the area, as well as the mining...More

1 floor with no info at all. 2nd floor under construction. 3rd sign in Spanish only. Not worth 40 pesos. Go on Sunday when it's free.

The floor between prehistory and the ranching era was under construction, so no info on the arrival of the Spanish. Also no signage on the prehistory floor, though there was a very friendly docent. Took about an hour, enjoyed the visit, and will go back...More

Only 2 rooms open and lots of construction going on. Not really worth visiting if you want a "full" Museo experience but I really enjoyed the photographs.

Rambling exhibits could have better organization. Mostly Spanish explanations - not easy for English-speaking visitors to follow. Not worth visiting if you are limited on time.

Only a downstairs exhibit of historic photographs and the upstairs dioramas were open to the public. The photos were from mainland Mexico so did not add to our understanding of the area, and the dioramas lack signage in any language. Would love to come back...More

Extremely limited exhibitions and most of the museum is going under a remodel! They should announce this a bit more so as to not dissapoint visitors.
