Interesting insights into the life of an important Mexican figure but needs more information on his life and impact on Mexican history. Overpriced for what is provided.

Everything inside this house including the video about Benito Juarez's life is in Spanish so if you can't understand Spanish then is is not for you. Not worth the price of admission as far as I'm concerned.

I'd walked by this 60 or 70 times without going in. Finally decided to take a peek and was very impressed with the look at this fine old residence. Suggest it to all.

This is very near from the main street and is a quick visit to kind of get an idea of life back then.
