“Excellent museum”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

They really have this set up in a great way of moving through Mexican history. Great exhibits and a large array of things to see inside. Well worth it.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

It is a must for people interested in history and culture. You can learn the particular history from monterrey and Noroeste Mexicano. The fee is cheap and includes parking.

“nice little museum”
Reviewed 20 November 2012

this was a nice little museum that you are able to go through in about an hour. Since we do not speak Spanish, it was helpful that we knew some history of Texas and Mexico before going. The items on display are terrific and in good preserved condition. The only downside are the rest rooms. Both men's and women's had no toilet paper, no running water in the sinks and no paper towels. All you get is a "one-seater" that flushes so make sure you "go" before you go.
