Perspective of Mexican History

We especially liked learning more about the history of colonial Mexico and where it fit into the rest of Mexico's history, which is why we came to this part of Mexico.

A gem in Queretaro, this museum provides a nice overview of the history and culture of the region. The building is very beautiful.

Good experience about Mexican History. When I was in Queretaro, the museum was free for students....

Unlike the rest of the surrounding buildings, this field museum is HUGE. Lots of artifacts and pieces that document the history of the city and of prehistoric Mexico. You must present and I.D. before you enter, but other than that I believe it was free on Saturday. Make sure you have your walking shoes!

This is a must when visiting Queretaro. The museum is located in a beautiful building next to the city's cathedral. The internal patios are amazing. The museum is well maintained with a quick view of the state's history, one of the richest in the country. Worth the visit!

This museum is located next to the Church of San Francisco and used to be its convent. Like many properties owned by the Catholic Church in Querétaro and throughout Mexico, it was confiscated by the Government in the late 19th century during the historical era known as the la reforma (the reform). The main interior courtyard of the structure is... More

Not only is Queretaro - or the Centro Historico at any rate - very beautiful, but it has a long and important history. That history is well presented, with a wealth of fascinating artifacts, at the Museo Regional, right in the heart of the old city. The chronological presentation takes the visitor from the earliest known settlements in the area,... More

This is a beautiful museum. Starting with the architecture of the building. There was a temporary exposition of a mammoth which was great. In this museum you can see what Queretaro has to offer. Tons of different ancient cultures with great amount of inheretage. I enjoyed every single bit of the place.

They had the temporary display of the remains of a real mammoth. I had seen it before in Guadalajara but I liked the way they did the display in the Museo Regional, the reading for every piece is VERY SMALL though you can hardly read it. The convento building is beautiful and you feel like you can travel back in... More
