This museum is housed in a centuries old building. Interesting artifacts of pre-hispanic Mexico of Tarrascan Indians, the Mexican Revolution that overthrew the Spanish imposed government and made Mexico independent. Lots of history here!

A bit of everything, prehistoric, natural, local life, history, etc. Signposted in Spanish only, but you can guess what's what about. Local art in one of the rooms as well.

The Michoacan Museum was interesting both in its prehistoric exhibits but also 19th-century Mexican history. Located in the center of the colonial city.

I have been searching for the connection between the 2 states of Michoacan and Michigan. This museum was very helpful and interesting. There was no crime or anything to worry about here. A very pleasant experience.
