Torreón

In spite of being a young city, Torreón, Coahuila, has a great history, proof of which can be found in the museums it houses and let yourself be wrapped up in its hospitality.

El Museo del Algodón (“The Cotton Museum”), which gave its name to the city through the tower that was built, is the greatest testimony of one of the products that made the Comarca Lagunera prosperous: cotton.

A beautiful panoramic view of the city may be seen at the Casa del Cerro Museum, thanks to its strategic location, which enables visitors to spend an afternoon watching the sunset through its windows.

Within its walls, there are 10 permanent rooms that display objects that belonged to the Wulff family -former owners of the house-, paintings, sculptures, photographs, wooden furniture, clothes and accessories.

Another museum is that of El Ferrocarril (“The Railroad”), in which we see a fantasy model, equipped with trains that make an attractive tour, as well as working instruments that were used by Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México (“National Railroads of Mexico”).

Finally, let yourself be enveloped by contemporary, European and New Spain art in the Arocena Museum, where we see a collection of 300 works of viceregal, European and Mexican art. This museum is located in front of the Plaza de Armas in the downtown area.
