I was expecting something different but enjoyed the exhibitions very much. Its worth finding out what is on show while you are Puebla. t costs 25 pesos to get in and was worth it!

This is a favorite place to visit. It hosts examples of all of the different artisan groups across Puebla state. It's been a bit dusty for some years but still interesting. It ends with the wonderful huge kitchen in which,legend says,mole poblano was invented by the nuns of the convent The highlight of the museum is this kitchen, which is huge beyond belief and completely covered with Talavera tile. This is why people come to the museum. It's hard to believe. It will be interesting to see how the renovations will present the museum when it reopens.

The former convent of Santa Rosa is part of the attraction and the collection of local handicrafts is the other part. Both were interesting in their own way. You begin by getting your tickets in the beautiful courtyard which is worth seeing even if that is all you see. We had to go on a tour which turned out to be just the two of us and the nice old gentleman who guided us through the building struggled to explain things to us. His English was on a par with our Spanish so we did have fun communicating. It is a nice display of older locally made handicrafts and some were quite exquisite. A highlight was getting into what was the kitchen of the convent which was set up like it was still used and it was there where maybe mole poblano was first created by nuns in colonial times.
