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.

Very nice place! The museum is well organized and they have great objects from the Aztec Empire. Besides, the building has a nice shape and the inside is really beautiful.

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

Staff was so helpful. I asked if their were English speaking guides. They didn't have any at the moment but a guide found me in the museum and walked me around for a while and asked if I needed help ordering lunch too. Nice exhibits and history of the area. Great way to learn about the history of culture of... More

This is an incredible museum! It's intuitive, interactive, and very creative. You walk through all of Mexico's history in a fun, beautiful setting. I can't rave enough about this museum!

I highly recommend you NOT miss the opportunity to see the King Tut exhibit. Came here on Tuesday (free museum day), I was surprised it wasn't crowded. Then again, regular admission is $40 pesos ($3 dollars and change) and I believe kids are always free. My kids learned had just learned about Ancient Egypt at school and were very excited... More

I have been to Mexico plenty of times and every time I get there I discover something new. But this museum shows you all their origins from the beginning of the american tribes and then the mixture with spanish casts, then their history through nowdays. It was a cool experience. Right next on the door building there's another awesome museum.
