Ensenada History Museum

Ensenada

The greatest witness of the evolution of the city since its foundation is the Museo de Historia de Ensenada (Ensenada History Museum), whose objective is to promote among its inhabitants an appreciation for their roots, their history and identity.

Located within the facilities of the Centro Social, Cívico y Cultura Riviera (Social Center, Civic and Culture Riviera), the building is a 1930 construction and it was inaugurated on May 20, 1993.

Its beautiful white building and red roofs, surrounded by beautiful gardens and green areas, invite you to discover each of the exhibitions within its eight rooms where you can see indigenous utensils, objects dating from the time of the missions and paintings that recreate the indigenous past of the region.

In a room of the Museum, the indigenous groups of Baja California are shown in their encounter with the Hispanic culture. Through photographs you can see the groups that survive, as well as a map that locates the current indigenous communities. In another area, a large diorama is displayed, with a mural that represents the “Cochero de Punta Banda” (Punta Banda’s Coachman), one of the sites inhabited by the Kumiai indigenous people in ancient times.

Este maravilloso edificio de arquitectura morisca organiza visitas guiadas y talleres relacionados con la historia de Baja California. También cuenta con una biblioteca, una fototeca, una tienda en donde se pueden adquirir libros de la historia local y regional o bien un souvenir.
