Learn what it was like to be a nun in a convent living under the Rule of St. Augustine. Simply amazing. The young tour guides don't charge and they are a wealth of knowledge.
There were very friendly students who guided us in English because the inscriptions were Spanish only. They refused our gratuity saying they were doing it as a service. Some of the nicest, young people we met in Mexico--also great museum of convent life
This newly renovated museum is where the Augustine nuns created Chiles en Nogada. But that is not the only interesting thing about this museum. You will learn about the history of nuns in Puebla, of the Catholic Church in Mexico, and see the actual Talevera tiled kitchen where the nuns cooked. The entrance fee of 35 pesos is very reasonable... More
The building is lovely and the kitchen is wonderful, but the actual museum of religious art is a little staid and unless you have a particular interest in religious art, can be quite tedious.
