Absolutely brilliant, three blocks from Zocalo, and easy to find. It's 35 pesos to enter, and is worth every penny! The exhibits range from early mesoamerican art to a pretty colonial era apartment/house. I spent two hours in there, and would only warn people who can't speak Spanish that they should probably take the audio tour. I was fine without... More

On a beautiful sunny afternoon at sunset the rooftop bar/cafe at the Amporo is a chilled out, relaxed place to enjoy a beer, cocktail or even a tequila as the sun sets. With expansive 360 degree views of the city rooftops and church steeples you can also take in the majestic red, pink and blue sky colours of the setting... More

Museo Amparo has a good permanent exhibition on Mexican history and changing modern art exhibitions. On the roof they have a very nice café where you have a good view on the town. Certainly worthwhile to visit when in Puebla and you like modern art.

I visited Puebla from 6th to 14th October 2016 for the CBSG and WAZA Conference. I visited the Amparo Museum and had dinner also. The museum located in the centre of Puebla city, in the erstwhile colonial building, which was residence of a rich person, is great experience. Its wide courtyards are beautiful. It has excellent collection of pre-hispanic, colonial,... More

We loved the Amparo Museum in Puebla. Lots to see and there are several floors to explore .... plus a coffee shop on the top floor. The city views are wonderful. Modern museum but through one door you will find a beautiful home from years ago. I loved seeing the furniture and artwork at that exhibit! The museum is full... More

Even if you do not have time to visit the museum (try to find time); a visit to the rooftop cafe is a must! The views of the city are absolutely amazing and worth the sometimes slow cafe service. :)

A jewel, filled with beautifully displayed objects of all aspects of the cultural life of preColumbian peoples. Great attention has been paid to layout and logical reveals of items. 35 pesos and not much more for an interpretive unit, it is well worth several hours to get up close to Mayan stella, sculptures, and a look into a world once...

Don't miss this museum which includes all types of items that will wow you. Lots to see. When you get tired go to the third floor for a drink and a very nice view.
