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.

This is probably the most beautifully resumed way of the mexican history and culture. Every exhibition this museum has is in perfect condition, it has interactive activities for children and is very illustrative. I have to congratulate as well to the people that works there, they are really friendly and kind. The fauna exhibition is very interesting because is very... More

If you enjoy museums this is a must visit. This museum has great exhibit of Mexican history, but what I love the most was the history of Monterrey exhibit. They have lots of artifact from the industrial times of when the city was built. It also has a cute souvenir shop. You can also enjoy the cold AC in hot... More

What a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours for next to nothing! (I think we paid the equivalent of $2.00 to enter!) This museum does a beautiful job of laying out Mexico's history in a way that is easy to understand, even for someone who doesn't speak the language. The exhibits are well-done, and well-lit. There are several... More

I find the place quite nice and having some good collections of the history. I enjoyed the interactive mayan number system understanding and date system understanding. the ivory section is really amazing. It is all in Spanish - so my learning got limited. PS - it is free entry on Sunday

I loved this museum. So many beautiful pieces of work, i wasnt able to see it all! The museum is free on sundays, which is when we went, and closes at 7 or 8 i believe. If you're into historical art i highly suggest this museum.

The second floor is the best part. If you want to learn about Mexico's history this is the place. Only drawback is that its not in English.

I really like this museum. I went with my 2 children and we learned a lot about Mexican history. The only downside were the guards. They made us feel VERY uncomfortable, I understand it is they job to look after the museum but they are just behind you following you at all times and telling me that kids couldn't touch... More

Our eldest son graduated from Tec as an Industrial Engineer and received a masters in finance. Our youngest just enrolled as a freshman. This is a wonderful university, relatively inexpensive by U.S. standards, and graduates are in demand anywhere.
