There was a lot of great info and good history about the development of the area.
It is told from the side of the winners. I would have liked to see more the indigenous peoples story and history.

Cool little museum with lotsa of local art. San Miguel has an enormous art scene and this museum should be on your list of places to visit.

Wonderful museum of local history with fully bilingual signage explaining everything. The museum hasn't yet reopened because of COVID, but hopefully soon as I'm looking forward to a return visit since my first one in 2019. The state of Guanajuato went to Green a few weeks back on Mexico's COVID stoplight system, but the municipality of San Miguel de Allende has opted to wait a bit longer before switching from Yellow to Green.

With signs in English and Spanish, here you will get a good feel for the local history and how an upper class home operated 200 years ago. The furniture and accessories are from the era. I found the kitchen setup particularly fascinating.

I learned quite a bit about Ignacio Allende and the start of the Mexican War of Independence, as well as what it might have been like to live in an upper class home in the early 1800s. Some of the photos led me to believe this was a smallish house museum. Not so. It's an impressive two-story with a central courtyard as well as another small side patio. It's located directly next to the large St. Michael's church. There is an admission charge. Each room is furnished with period pieces and has a large label in Spanish and English describing how it was used by the Allende family, as well as information about Allende's role in the revolution.

The lighting in this museum is very poor and that makes it difficult to appreciate the art and written descriptions throughout. Sadly, my friend and I left after about an hour as we were struggling to enjoy the portraits and stories of the history of Allende's importance in San Miguel. The building itself was his former home and an impressive example of the architecture of the time.

I visited the museum yesterday and was quite surprised at how interesting it was. I’m not a big museum fan but this was informative, information was in both Spanish and English. I would recommend a visit to anyone visiting SMA, spent around one hour here.

This museum tells the story of the founding of the town and the start of the 19th century Mexican revolution. It is set in the home of Ignacio Allende who was one of the key instigators.

The historic house is furnished as it would have been during this period and each room has an information panel in english explaining the sequence of events as you move around. There are also exhibits of some personal effects and related memorabilia but only in Spanish. However, the panels provide for more than enough reading.

A visit to the museum provides for a good history lesson in an interesting setting.

This museum gives a very good overview of the origins and the history of SMA. In addition to the connection with Spain, its rise and fall, some very good informstion about Miguel de Allende. Most of the info is abailable in Spanish and English, but not all. This is Mexico after all. Take about an hour to visit.
