Bicentennial Museum

Dolores Hidalgo

This place has an over 800 pieces collection which allude to the first Centenary of Independence celebration, including portraits, photographs of buildings, music, weapons and jewelry of that period. In this five-rooms divided building, you can find out about life during the Porfiriato, and what life was like in Mexico and Guanajuato at the beginning of 20th century, as well as learning about customs and daily events.

Some Centenary of Independence memorable objects include the program inviting people to the celebration, the lavish menu proposed by Porfirio Díaz, and even a conversation he had with American Scientist, Thomas Alva Edison, subtitled from English into Spanish.

Other objects on display include cigarette packs, matches, knives, cutlery, and a collection of more than a hundred photographs with Industrial Revolution and post-revolutionary Mexico images, taken from Alhóndiga de Granaditas’ photographic archive.
