The building itself is quite wonderful, but with an English audio guide and the excellent written English labels, the best part of this exhibit is the Mesoamerican collection. Themes that ran through centuries and groups are easy to follow and the objects themselves are outstanding. We now understand the origins of images by Tamayo and his contemporaries. The guide is...

We took a group of new teachers to Mexico to Puebla. At the Museum we had a guide in Spanish, one in English and special guides for the children. The guides were excellent and so knowledgeable. The museum is well organized and spotless and the staff are helpful and kind. We saw Goeritz and early Mexican exhibits and everyone was... More

Very impressive collection of artefacts from all over Mexico in their permanent collection. Also have a number of interesting contemporary temporary exhibitions. Museum itself has been renovated and is a beautiful space. Free on Mondays.

The Museo Amparo has all the makings of a very good museum, but doesn't follow through. It is well lit, except when the exhibits demand a higher level of lighting to read the words on the artwork. It has plenty of audivisual aids, but the sounds from the exhibits are more annoyiing than useful when you are looking at something... More

A spectacular pre Hispanic museum with excellent audioguides and two other superb art installations (Matthias Goeritz particularly impressive). Great rooftop cafe.

The Amparo is a really good museum, with small but informative displays. There is a room on the second floor that houses up to date exhibitions and that is a treat. One more floor up and you are on the 'terraza'. The terrace gives you a magnificent view of the city and surrounding country side. There is a bar for... More

The museum has an amazing collection and the building it's beautiful by itself. You can go to the coffe on the rooftop and have and incredible view of Pueblas downtown. They also have a library that you can visit for free. Undoubtly a must visit in Puebla.
