The house itself has been beautifully restored, and each room has beautiful collections. I really enjoyed looking at the furniture and the glassware, and the view over Querétaro from the lookout is stunning.

Old home with a very interesting history. Great period furniture. Unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. I would recommend it for people interested in learning about this period of Mexican history.

Each of the patio-facing rooms on two floors has been furnished in a different historical style, though few of the objects on display are original to... More

I found this beautiful house interesting to visit and the videos of the Zacatecana legend were entertaining enough but the price seemed a bit high for what was offered (maybe teenagers should be free then it would be OK). It takes about 45 minutes to view the two videos and visit the twelve rooms. There are many beautiful art objects... More
