A lot of information on the area including very important historical info. Outside the museum it's just as historical. There's an area facing the entire city from the top and that provides for a meaningful experience. The only downside is that some areas are plagued...More

The Bufa has great view during the day and night. Unfortunately the teleférico was closed both times we came. It gets chilly at night. Try climbing to the top... to the cross.

We disappointed to learn that we couldn't get to the top by tram since they were building a new system and it wasn't ready yet. We went by cab which didn't cost that much. The views are spectacular, we were there on a sunny day...More

Just another place to check out craftery and mexican revolution heroes on their horses. People are nice but going to Zacatecas downtown would be equally satisfying.

So much history. How General Fransisco Villa took over Zacatecas in one day. Beautiful scenery of the city from the top

It's only a read only place where you learn about Mexican revolution/history. There's various vendors outside, but that's it. I wasn't thrilled about it.

The view from here is amazing. There are little shops, a church and you can even do zip lining. Recommend wearing comfy shoes. And bring your money because you will find items from silver to clothes.

I cannot answer this, but there are plenty of hotels in downtown that are very close to the Nighclubs, an easy walk there and back.
