Costumbrist Museum of Sonora

Álamos

When we talk about Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns), we mean places full of history and culture. In Alamos, Sonora, you will find the Costumbrist Museum of Sonora (Museo Costumbrista de Sonora), an enclosure housed in a 17th century building.

The building was built in 1868 and is part of the catalogue of Historical Monuments of the mining city of Alamos, declared as National Monument. Initially it was a house, later it was a haberdashery; but in 1984 the state government acquired the property and turned it into a museum.

The site is located facing the Plaza de Armas en el Pueblo and represents an entire historical, economic, social and cultural tour of the region. Its objective is to spread the historical roots of the people of Sonora, through the knowledge of their facts, traditions and customs.

The objects that make up the museum are original and date from the 19th century. Each of them occupies a prominent place in the rooms dedicated to Alfonso Ortiz Tirado, philanthropist, doctor and tenor.

It has more than 2,600 objects, including dioramas, machinery, utensils and other antiques. This collection includes the photographic collection of Ortiz Tirado, which talks about the urbanism of the city and the nature that surrounds it.

The museum is an emblematic treasure of the history and culture of the region, and has workshops. It is located at Guadalupe Victoria no. 1, Colonia Centro.
