  • It used to be a nice museum. Now it Is a complete mess. Most comments are wrong and the same text Is repeted many times. A complete waste of Time.
  • Very nice museum if you are into war history and the origin of todays Mexico and all the wars that where fought in the past. A big negative is that everything is solely in Spanish. If you are a foreign tourist, not speaking Spanish, make sure you have a capable translator walking you through this nice museum.
