This is a new museum with the history of Ignacio Allende and the movement of Mexican Independence. Whether you are a Mexican history buff or a total novice, you will enjoy this museum. The exhibits with written explanations lay out the significance of the city of San Miguel de Allende in relation to the Mexican War of Independence.

This hacienda was entertaining. The main history was in Spanish and English. The descriptions of objects were in Spanish only. Apparently they have a play as well but we didn't stay for it.

Cost, 50 pesos - absolutely worth the cheap price to learn a detailed account of the Allende family and the importance they played in the rich Mexican history.

We loved seeing the inside of Allende's beautiful, colonial mansion and learning about his family and role in the Mexican Independence movement. In English and Spanish.
