  • Amazing span of Mexican history in a very organized and complete exhibition. A great place for half a day  more »
  • This is a really nice, interactive museum, and you actually get all three museums for the same price. 40 pesos for all three museums. I recommend going with plenty of time to enjoy them fully. There's a nice show inside an old locomotive car every half hour and plenty of dioramas and audio visual aids to make it interesting for kids
  • After visiting it, it becomes one of my favorite museums. It has so many stuff to show you the history of Mexico in a really fun way. So you can learn a lot in just one place. Something I really loved was the showcases where you can see different objects from the Mexico's independence or revolutionary war. It has different hall with different stuff you can appreciate. It has a real train, a big map of Mexico where you can walk, a hall where you can feel on the woods for his really big trees......
