This is interesting, reflecting his time here as a student. If you have the time, visit. But the textile, Tamayo and stamp museums are better.

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.

A good introduction to this amazing Mexican leader. If you follow his career or are interested in Mexican history, it comes highly recommended. Small home, not time consuming.

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 museum is small and compact with different rooms dedicated to specific periods of Spanish and Oaxaca history and crafts. Well played out and easy to see and appreciate the items on display. You should not miss this.
