“Nice visit to history!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I had the opportunity to visit this beautiful Museum in downtown Villahermosa. Our tour guy (I don't recall his name) was a very nice, educated, and lively man. The Museum is conveniently located in one of the principal corners of the downtown just two blocks away form the Government offices and the principal plaza.
The museum is full of art from different eras of the region. From the conquest all the way to the Mexican revolution.

“Spectacular collection of Tiles”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

The Casa de los Azulejos, is a historic building, that has a very elegant collection of tiles that cover both floors and walls, each room has a different pattern, and motif.
Worth a stop by to look into the architecture. The few museum items are scarce, but the building itself deserves looking at.

“pathetic little museum with very little inside”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

A pretty blue building in an ugly town hosted a collection of old sewing machines, cash registers, typewriters, a few uninteresting paintings and that was about it. Very pretty tile floors and walls though. If you´re stuck in Villahermosa, might as well go. It{s centrally located.

“Nice building...displays lacking”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

I don't know, maybe there's not much to tell about the history of Tabasco, but I found the museum uninteresting...and I'm fascinated by Mexican history. The building itself is worth a visit. As you climb the stairs to the museum, the first "display" is an old X-Ray machine with it's assorted accessories. At the top of the stairs is a late 50s TV and a console stereo of the same era. After that, it was all down hill...just kidding...there was a room with couple of large French urns with Napoleon painted on them. The same room had a couple of uniforms in glass cases. Probably the nicest thing in the museum was a painting of Emilio Zapata by Alfredo Zalce. In all there was far more history shown in the mural in the downstairs entryway.
