This is a small museum up on a small mountian. Inside the museum there are old carriages, clothe and cannons. The visit does not take you more than an hour, but once you are outside the view of the city is great.

it is not a place that people tell you to visit but it was definitely one of my favorites. This place should really be at the top of the list when you visit Monterrey. There is a museum but it was closed when I visited so nothing to say about that. However, there is a lookout point that oversees all... More

Even though the museum is fairly small, it is indeed very interesting. You will learn about city history and enjoy the fantastic views from up there. Take your cameras because you wont get a better view of the city than from here. Just one thing I would like to suggest, if you are taking a stroller be prepared to carry... More

Museum is fairly small, Sunday entrance is free, on a clear day you can enjoy great views of the city, the visit can be done in about an hour.

We did visit the museum, but the bit we really remember is the view. Amazing panoramic view of the whole City and surrounding mountains. You can drive virtually to the top, walking the last 100m to the viewing area. Well worth the visit, especially on a clear day. .

This museum has not much inside but outside it has beautiful view of the whole city, you can sit on one of the cannons used for war and see how the world goes on down there in the city. If you go on weekends, they have a free lights and sound show for everyone at around 9 p.m., you will... More

We were arriving there late near to 10pm. They are very punctual in the closure, and they closed the gate at 10 sharp. I think its bad since we need to climb over the gate to get into our car, but quite a good experience to climb over the gate. The view from Obispado is gorgeous !! We were there... More

The place is very old and needs more up-keeping but if you love history you have to go.
