“Worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful experience, the murals inside are mind owing, the history of the place is one of the biggest highlights of the country. The guides inside are super well informed and their storytelling is fantastic.
Inside the exposition is very well put together and overall is a great visit. It will use up to 3 hours of your day if you're into history.

“Nice museum!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

I strongly recommend to go without children. They get bored, for us it was a great tour. There were a lot of details about our Independence that I didn't know. So many interesting histories about our heroes that are being described in this historic landmark. My wife, my older son and me enjoyed it very much.

“A lot of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

I really enjoyed this small museum because of the history. If you are interested in the Mexican Revolution and can read Spanish then this is a great place to visit. However if you can't read Spanish and don't have someone with you who does, then you should at least walk around the outside of the building to see the fours corners where the heads of the revolutionaries were hung and to see the door that Pipila was able to enter.
