Historically iconic, a time frozen place where a lot of suffering and at the same time victories, one of the Mexico's most valuable treasures...you definitely want to come here and take your time not just to learn the history but to feel it.

A must-see museum and historical site about Mexico's independence from Spain. Not to be missed and well worth the modest entrance fee.

We spent over 3 hours at the Alhondiga and still didn't see everything. The rooms showing the arte popular of Guanajuato were wonderful. These beautiful and simple objects should inspire to recreate some of this lovely folk art.

Classic architecture, art and history of the siege of Guanajuato in 1810. If you are someone in your party is over 60, you may enter for free by showing your ID. It's an extra few pesos if you want to take pictures.

Small but interesting museum giving an overview of Mexican history focusing on Guanajuato. Worth the few pesos you pay. However there is something odd: if you want to take pictures you have to pay an extra. Never have experienced that anywhere in the world.

Well laid out local and national history, but unfortunately only in Spanish. Great murals on the main staircase. Pleased to see students of all ages attending and learning.

Alhondiga De Granaditas was originally built to house grain, but is perhaps most famous for the attack by Hildago on September 28, when a miner strapped a stone to his back and crept up to the wooden gate.
