While the museum is small, it tells a great story about Puebla's past with the old burial found there.It's a beautiful building that also features live music and has a great little cafe. I enjoyed my visit there and wouldn't hesitate to bring friends there too.

The contents, display, and explanations are all first rate. This museum should be at top of your lists. It is beautifully presented and easily as excellent as the Amparo Museo
It is surprisingly large but small enough to not wear you This is clearly one of the best Museums in Puebla

Do not miss the exquisite collection "Amos Por Siempre" at the Casa de Mendrugo museum. I have visited museums all over Mexico, but this collection of incised and engraved Zapotecan skulls is unique and so beautifully presented. Really, if you have any interest in pre-Hispanic art, leave at least an hour for this vibrant exhibit.

We were having an exquisite breakfast at the downstairs restaurant, and talking with the manager who spoke of the findings at this location. Apparently, the discoveries underneath this amazing place changed everything that archeologists and historians knew about Puebla. The chuchita (female skeleton) that was excavated here changed history. It's a small but wonderful place! A must visit in Puebla!

This museum exists to explain the fascinating discovery nearly 10 years ago of a skeleton beneath the building. But the museum, which is expertly presented including English translations, is so much more: it is housed in a building that has been completely restored from the ground up by a fascinating Mexican entrepreneur named Ramon. There is an exquisite restaurant, an upscale coffee bar, a gift shop and exquisite decorative wall decor. The general manager, David Alonso, took us on a custom tour during a quiet moment as we enjoyed the Dia de los Muertos altar part of a special street tour in Puebla. The museum is not to be missed, if only to take in all that this wonderful destination has to offer for mind, soul and belly!

A very interesting collection in this small and extremely well preserved museum, which is combined with a cafe, a restaurant and a store.
