Overall, the best museum in Guanajuato. A little bit of everything as related to the fascinating history of the city and the region. Admission was 52 pesos per person. Well worth the price.

This building holds so much history (site of the first major rebel victory in Mexico's War of Independence, and other historic artifacts are displayed), and you can enter and explore for hours if you’d like, for 52 pesos, if I remember correctly. There are panels...More
