We made a really quick stop here during our whirlwind walk around town. We didn't have time to actually explore the museum; were more interested in the gift shop! One of the men working there makes beautiful horsehair belts for men and women, horsehair hatbands,...More

Charming little museum in Alamos, Sonora, Mexico, just off the main square. Tells the history of the town, especially about the silver mining in the nearby hills. Not a great museum but worth the visit if you're in Alamos.

Interesting little museum about Alamos and the surrounding area. Everything is in Spanish, but they provide you with an English guide which is helpful. It is worthwhile, particularly at the cost of admission which is only 10 pesos.

This is an interesting museum that highlights the important historic details of Sonora and its culture. We walked through it in less than an hour and it was worth the small entrance fee.

This small museum is very well laid out with very nice and informative displays. The displays are laid out in the rooms of an old hacienda to present dioramas of silver mining, a doctor's office, and family genealogical history. It can also boast a small...More
