Located next to the larger Museo Nacional de Historia, this small museum documents the history of the country from 1800 to 1917, with an emphasis on the Mexican struggle for independence. It is also known as "Museo del Caracol" (The Snail Museum) for the spiral shape of its glass building.

We were highly disappointed in this museum. TIP1: there is no support for English. Everything is in Spanish. Luckily, we speak enough Spanish to get the gist of things. The history of Mexico is told in a spiraling series of vignettes, minatures, or dioramas. I...More

This is Mexican history as distorted by the PRI. The design of the building, the Caracol, was interesting, as it circles down while moving forward in time. The exhibits however were childish, and the idea presented, that the Constitution solved all of Mexico's political problems,...More
