Quetzalcóatl Historical Hall

Tula de Allende

If you want to continue looking into Tula’s past and marveling at the wealth of archaeological remains and discoveries in the zone, we recommend you going to this central museum in Zaragoza st, next to the open-air theater.

The Quetzalcóatl historical room opened 22 years ago to reveal the city's evolution secrets through the paintings, sculptures, photographs, handicrafts and other region’s pieces exhibition and analysis. Each of its three levels are focused on different objectives.

The first is for temporary exhibitions where photographs, handmade crafts or pictorial works of different local and national authors are presented. In the second room you’ll find archaeological pieces of both Toltec and other prehispanic cultures with presence in Tula de Allende, such as Mexica, Teotihuacan, Huasteca and Aztec.

The exhibition, consisting of vessels, daily life objects or deities figures, will help you deepen this culture's importance and its evolution until its disappearance. Even in recent days, a community neighbor gave a Chac Mool from his private collection to share with visitors.

The last room is focused on showing videos and giving divulgative talks about the advances and discoveries made by archaeologists analyzing the pieces. A good way to end your visit is by acquiring some of the handicrafts made by locals, most of them inspired by the region's mother culture.
