  • We visited Saturday April 1, we went to the Museum which has the history of the battle of May 5. We do not pay entrance with our credential of INAPAM, (my sisters and I) have all the description about the battle against the French, so it collection of clothing, weapons, pictures of the main actors of this historical fact of our country, writings, objects belonging to Maximiliano, calculate 2 hours visit, in which we could call patios there is a wonderful view of the city of Puebla. Don't forget to visit this historic site

  • It is a good place to start your visit of Puebla, in your external account with green areas and fabulous view of the city, to be more specific from the historic center of Puebla. Entry to the Museum costs approx. 50 MXP and although it could be better organized, is a very good dive to the history of the place, the city and the country in general. Note that it has been invested in maintenance. The Fort has its history. You can arrive by car since boasts free parking either the tourist trolley buses make a stop for about 30 minutes in the place, it will give you time to visit the Museum but to enjoy the view.
