Morelos Birth Museum

Morelia

Morelia bears in its name a tribute to the Mexican independence leader José María Morelos y Pavón, known as “Siervo de la Nación” (the servant of the nation) and therefore you can't miss the visit to the Museo Casa Natal de Morelos (Morelos Birth Home Museum).

The 17th century facility, declared a national monument, was rebuilt in 1888. Nowadays it houses a cultural area where the life and work of the independence leader is shown.

As you walk through its rooms, you can see a large collection that includes engraved portraits of Morelos, also known as the “Caudillo del Sur,” as well as part of his belongings, highlighting the funeral mask, his military coat and a fragment of the handkerchief with which they covered his eyes in his execution.

In addition, in the house of Morelos lives the only robot of an Independence’s hero in all of Mexico: in a small room that simulates his private study, tells visitors how he took part in the war for national independence. Undoubtedly an incredibly didactic and educational experience for the little ones.
