This museum is housed in a centuries old building. Interesting artifacts of pre-hispanic Mexico of Tarrascan Indians, the Mexican Revolution that overthrew the Spanish imposed government and made Mexico independent. Lots of history here!

The Michoacan Museum was interesting both in its prehistoric exhibits but also 19th-century Mexican history. Located in the center of the colonial city.
