This museum holds a collection of local history items. But even more impressive is the building itself, which is covered inside and out with various tiles from Barcelona. Some rooms have three different tile designs in them.

An interesting place to learn about the area's history. The tiles alone are worth the visit. The staff were very sweet to us. Note that the signage is all in Spanish (this is NOT a complaint in any way) so if you don't have a...More

I was wondering around the town center, and took the time to stop here. Although there is no english signage, most displays are not hard to understand. The people were patient with me (I speak very little Spanish), and the price was about $1.50 (US)....More

Nice little museum with explanations in Spanish only. Not a lot to ie but the tiles are very nice. 15 or 20 minutes. Cost is 30 pesos.

Here you can see old stuff and it's book store too. You can see mosaics on the floor and learn about Tabasco life style.

We didn't get the full tour due to renovations, but the building is especially fine. We will look forward to seeing the interior on our next visit to Villahermosa!

Set right in the downtown historic center for convenient access and inside a beautiful colonial house with tiled walls. Great information about the state's history- not too overwhelming, not too little.

Beautiful 19th century building filled with catalan tiles. Everywhere. Some rooms have different patterns on the same wall, floor. The museum has some interesting historical information about Tabasco since the Conquest. Due to its lack of precious minerals, the Spanish put their attention elsewhere --...More
