  • Visit for a day already that the Museum is small, but contains a good part of the story, belongs to INAH, by such reason Sundays is free, and you can see very well the Hill of the Chair has a fabulous view.

  • The Museum is down a little Hill stands a huge flag of Monterrey. Known as one of the oldest in city buildings. Rather poor historical Museum in Monterrey, but still good fun. Flag the lookout evening is recommended. Sunset over the mountain looks beautiful.

  • Great romantic and historic place ! Best view in Monterey!
  • It's a great place to visit and enjoy the view of the city of Monterrey.
  • Great place to visit in the evening to experience beautiful sunset scenery and see the city lights.
  • The best museum in the whole state to learn the history of "Los regios ", it was an old church that has been used in several battles as a strategic forth because from there you can admire the whole city, in the upper part of " El cerro del obispado" you can appreciate Mexico's Flag and its evolution, at night you can get astonished by the view of the city's lights
  • Great museum very small but has a lot of Monterrey's history in it.
