The second floor is the best part. If you want to learn about Mexico's history this is the place. Only drawback is that its not in English.

Our eldest son graduated from Tec as an Industrial Engineer and received a masters in finance. Our youngest just enrolled as a freshman. This is a wonderful university, relatively inexpensive by U.S. standards, and graduates are in demand anywhere.

You cannot leave Monterrey without visiting "El Museo de Historia Mexicana". It is composed of several exhibitions from ancient Mexico to Modern era, it is a open space musem, very cozy and entretaining.
You can always, visit the museum and then take a walk along the "Rio Santa Lucia" until you get to "Parque Fundidoira"...nice 3 Km walk.

There are five salas on the second floor; pre-historic times, pre-Hispanic civilizations, Spanish rule, revolutions of the 19th century, and modern Mexico. Everything is in Spanish, you probably won't learn much if you don't speak the language.

On Tuesday the entrance is free, in addition to Sundays (when most Mexican museums are free). The ticket here also gets you to nearby Museo del Noreste and Museo del Palacio, and you should really try to visit all three for a complete experience.

It was a good experience to learn about Mexican history. Only a the top floor. But interactive learning. Full stem train. Very educational. Everything is in spanish. They do have some computers/interactive touch screens, which you can change the information to English. But I think thats not enough, to get the whole experience, try to find a English guide - they may do this service at the museum. FYI you are not allowed to bring water bottles, but they have a baggage room to store items.

What a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours for next to nothing! (I think we paid the equivalent of $2.00 to enter!) This museum does a beautiful job of laying out Mexico's history in a way that is easy to understand, even for someone who doesn't speak the language. The exhibits are well-done, and well-lit.
There are several exhibits behind closed doors, so make sure you see them all.
HINT: Take a camera. Photography is allowed, and the lighting makes it easy to get a good shot.

I find the place quite nice and having some good collections of the history. I enjoyed the interactive mayan number system understanding and date system understanding. the ivory section is really amazing.
It is all in Spanish - so my learning got limited.
PS - it is free entry on Sunday
