Fodor's Review

Formerly an 18th-century palace, the museum traces Mexico's history from its pre-Hispanic days through the Cardenista period, which ended in 1940. President Lázaro Cárdenas, a native of Michoacán, was one of Mexico's most popular leaders because he nationalized the oil industry and supported other populist reforms. On the ground floor is an art gallery, plus archaeological artifacts (many intact) from Michoacán. Upstairs is an assortment of colonial objects, including furniture, clothing, household objects, and religious paintings. Displays are labeled in Spanish only.
