This is a nice place to spend a few hours learning about Mexican history. Nowhere near as good as museums in Mexico City, but very good nonetheless. Only about 50% is translated into English and 0% into other languages.

I spent an afternoon here in December 2017. The museum has good exhibits with extensive information. From the English-speaker's point of view, I found the fact that you could use a QR code to get an English translation of the museum information really great. Unfortunately,...More

A beautiful contemporary building houses this great museum, with a varied and interesting collection, Not much information is presented in English but it is still worth going to. A cafe in the basement has delicious sandwiches

Interesting museum that tell the history from the Northeast viewings. That doesn't mean is not accurate, but it's kind of (even) funny see how they bias a lot of exhibits. Actually is a good museum for all ages.
