  • Mexico where you can see at a glance the history attached to the Marcoplaza, where the taking; Paseo de Santa lucia cruises in dehydration. Free and open to the non-regular exhibitions open at any time in the history of Mexico by visiting the ancient and modern put into a good place to go to.

  • the museums that are found in this complex are 3 the best would be to visit them all to know the history, the virtual train ride is very comforting because what if we travel in three we remember and which does not therefore give an idea of how it was

  • A museum that, unlike others, is not designed to please tourists since it presents the story as it is. Integrates rooms temporary in the story low as permanent in the floor of up. Includes activities interactive especially the calendar Maya. It even has a train carriage inside that serves as a small room of projection on the events of the Mexican Revolution. In the circle internal are reconstructions of the ecosystems found in Mexico. Required several hours to walk it with calm. Tuesday and Sunday is free.
