This is a well organized museum which focuses on the Allende family but also the town. At Easter - one of the devotions to Mary is here and should be seen.

Some have written this casa is where the plots were discussed to start the Mexican independence movement. You can feel the history in the casa. And its a beautiful casa as well.

This was the Allende family dwelling. A colonial home.Outstanding mementoes and atmosphere. Do go, it´s a few feet from the main plaza. Costs a few pesos. The family were obviously quite posh in their day.

Visited the museum to learn more about the history of the region and was quite pleased with our visit. Museum is not 100% bilingual but that was not an issue since I don't tend to read everything anyway and can get the sense of the Spanish version.
