Linares Museum

Linares

The Linares Museum is a beautiful 18th-century building that stands out on the corner of Calle Morelos No. 105 with its yellow facade and is a space to learn more about the history of the Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town).

The building was used as a house-room, but in 1997 began its remodeling in order to adapt it to function as a museum. The redesign was in charge of the architect Rafael Adame Doria.

It covers an area of 1,600 square meters (17200 square feet) of construction divided into two levels. In its rooms, you can see a collection of 200 pieces on the history of the city and the region, from the time of the Colony to the 20th century.

Each of the exhibits has rails with halogen lamps on walls and pieces. There are also spaces for temporary exhibitions and plastic arts workshops.

The history of the building goes back to the origins of the Village of San Felipe de Linares. In the middle of the 19th century, the property passed to Antonio de la Paz, mayor in 1862, who built the second floor where the San Antonio Hotel was located. It was until 1993 when the site was acquired by the Government of the State of Nuevo León.
