“Great museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Very interesting .... Lucky we speak some Spanish! Some English titling would be good.
Some reading up before would be a good idea

“Great museum in an historic space.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

This museum is housed in the granary that was ground zero for the 1810 Mexican revolution. We learned much about Mexican history here.

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Don't miss the mural in the stairway! There is a great description of the work as well. This is a great museum that explains the role of Hidalgo and Pipila in the overthrow of the Spanish. The building is quite beautiful.

“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.
