“native president”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We only see singboard from the path of street. Benito Juarez stayed there
like younger boy. After he was first native president of Mexico. The home
is located very close to Oaxaca hotel,.on the left side, on opposite
direction to Zocalo. Inconspicuous home, one of many in the street. Small
singboard on the wall warn visitors only.

“Intimate and revealing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

It's amazing how well preserved the few artifacts of his life are in this small house. You get to see his bedroom, his kitchen and dining room, and the book-binding work he did. A small garden with a water fountain center the house, where you are free to enter each "room" comprised of different articles from his day. We paid 40 pesos (roughly 4 dollars) to enter. Sidenote: I don't know if it's usually there, but toward the back of the house there was a photography exhibit of Baja California art.

“Wished there were more about him”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

This is OK, but since Benito was a poor youth, there are no photos of him as a child or a young man. The video they showed on request was pretty lame.

“a glimpse into his life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

The museum has excellent commentaries on each stage of Juarez's life. The staff however knows little or nothing in either English or Spanish and the commentaries are mostly in Spanish

“Rare insight into history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Though it is a small museum, it was very English friendly. An English version of each room's information was made available where we purchased our tickets.
