Fodor's Review

Built as a private home for cattle rancher Francisco Avila in 1818, this museum preserves 7 of what were originally 18 rooms in the city's oldest standing residence. This graceful structure features 3-foot-thick walls made of adobe brick over cottonwood timbers, a traditional interior courtyard, and 1840s-era furnishings that bring to life an era when the city was still part of Mexico. The museum is open daily from 9 to 4.
