The Palacio de la Autonomía (Autonomy Palace) is a museum and site where the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México gained autonomy from direct government control in 1929. The building is from the late 19th century, and located on the corner of Licenciado de Verdad and Rep de Guatemala streets, north of Santa Teresa la Antigua and east of Templo Mayor. The site has a 500-year history, starting from part of lands granted by Hernán Cortés. The current building was constructed by the administration of President Porfirio Díaz, but it was ceded to the University in 1910. Since that time, the building has had a number of uses, including housing a dental school and a preparatory school. Today it houses the Museo de la Autonomía Universitaria (University Autonomy Museum).

  • Ooo vaayyy
  • El inmueble no es muy grande en cuanto al espacio disponible para visita del publico, pero es muy bonito, La exposición del miedo es interesante si se detiene uno a leer y comprender el porqué de todo. Encontrar un baño es un poco difícil para visitantes nuevos. La arquitectura es lo que mas resalta, esta hermoso el inmueble No es el mejor museo pero es decente
