Amparo Museum, Puebla

Puebla , Puebla

The Amparo Museum, one of the most distinguished museums of Mexico, houses an extensive collection of Mexican pre-Hispanic, colonial, modern and contemporary art. Two colonial compounds give shelter to this gallery: a mansion and a hospital. Both were brilliantly adapted to showcase the collection, which offers a comprehensive overview of the various periods of Mexico's cultures. In addition to observing the objects displayed in the display cabinets, you will be able to know what was happening in the rest of the world in the era in which they were created. A tour of the eight rooms dedicated to pre-Hispanic Mexico will allow you to admire more than 2 thousand carefully selected pieces that represent the ancient Mexican civilizations. Unlike other museums, the storefronts are not organized by geographical regions, but from a general theme that allows you to get a panoramic view of the Mesoamerican civilizations.
