Well explained and beautifully presented, the camera oscura is an invention of the Middle Ages that led to photography. Not to be missed, especially for kids.

It is worth spending 30 pesos. You will be able to see in real-time projection of important places of city Zacatecas from a bird's perspective. The image is projected on a large white dish using the principle invented by Leonardo da Vinci.
