After the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City this one is the best of its kind, its easy to follow the timeline and doesnt concentrate on one culture in particular. Some might disagree since it lacks "highlights" from every culture, but the capital took most of the big important things, hehehe, I like it.

This museum have thousands of historic objects from the Mexican history. I wasn't sure that I would understand anything at this museum since I don't speak Spanish. The staff at the entrance explained to me that most of the information is in Spanish and there is no translation at all. Even though I did enjoy the museum and spend many... More

There are facts in the form clay statues that indigenous people in mexico came in contact with Chinese people long before Europeans arrived in mexico. All the information... More

Having visited a lot of museums, this one is about average, however definitely a must-go in Monterrey. But there was barely any English explanation, so if you don't speak Spanish, a guide would help a lot

We came here to see the King Tut exhibit, and toured the entire museum. We drove by it a few times without seeing it. We ended up asking and it turned out we were literally in front of it. Some bigger signs for non locals would be nice. We parked and it turned out to have very nice access (wheelchair... More

The museum is very hi-tech. While it doesn't have a huge number of exhibits, they are carefully selected, interesting, and their presentation is simply superb.

If you like history this is a good place to spend a morning. It is small . it has a permanent exhibition and also temporary exhibitions. It is well kept. Please do not expect this ti be similar to the Mexico city history Museum. The content in Mexico is very different and many times larger. In Monterrey there are not... More
