Tulancingo

Start by visiting the Railway Museum in the old railway station, where through photographs, books and documents the importance of this means of transport until the late 19th century is shown.

Its seven rooms offer a complete outlook of Mexico railroad evolution. It begins with a chronological showing of its origin with the most important dates, historical documents and its arrival in Tulancingo. A wall photo of an old station stands out: steam engines starting their march and another waiting to be boarded by passengers.

Cananas and rifles of the Mexican Revolution are in the exhibition's third room; in fourth, called “Hidalguito”, the images of a railway and the diagram of station route are appreciated. The fifth contains objects from the stationmaster's office. Finally, in the sixth room, tools for maintenance are exhibited.

Follow the path at the Museo de Datos Históricos (Museum of Historical Data), settled where the first railway station was, built in 1893 by the philanthropist Gabriel Mancera. In its permanent exhibition Tulancingo history is told with photographs.

Last but not least, there’s the Museo de El Santo, dedicated to the wrestler also known as “El Enmascarado de Plata”. His real name was Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta. More than 200 pieces are shown, with large fragments of his life and his sporting career.
