Just for the historical context alone, this place is well worth a visit. Some interesting exhibits and murals.

Number one on the to-do list for Guanajuato, make a point of standing through the docent led historical acount, great story of the start of the Mexican revolution and the role the Alondiga played in its outcome.

This place has a lot of history, related to Mexico's i dependence. It is now a museum, it was a jail, a grain depository, a fortress. It has a museum inside, around 40 pesos admission, 30 pesos for camera use. Worth the visit. Its main entrance is right in front of the wax museum.

A historic building with exhibits from early times and from other areas of Mexico. There were crowds of people, including students learning about their country's history.
