Recently renovated, this is truly a wonderful museum that celebrates Mexican culture and heritage. Housed in a recently restored house, the displays are well illuminated and explained in both Spanish and English. Although Mexican culture is so vast, this museum gives you a small taste...More

A quick visit to this very well preserved house will give you a sense of how the high class of Puebla used to live. Very special pieces in each room including the kitchen, clothes and a very special oratory room.

It's outstanding. The abundance of decoration is wonderful and it's amazing it has lasted so long. I'm not sure if it's original or if it's restored, but either way it's definitely worth seeing.
