Córdoba

You shouldn’t miss the Museum of Córdoba, with rooms dedicated to archeology and history and also temporary exhibitions.

It has samples of Olmec, Mayan, Huasteca, Teotihuacan and Totonaca cultures, as well as graphic representations of Córdoba’s historical events, such the May 21 battle and the signing of the Tratados de Córdoba, in 1821, between Iturbide and Juan O 'Donojú, which culminated the Mexican dependence to Spain.

You’ll find vessels, cannons, axes and spears among much more weaponry, as well as some Mesoamerican cultures original figurines and other replicas.

If you go as a family, in the Elena Poniatowska play center children can spend pleasant hours accompanied by storytelling, recreational activities or workshops specially designed for them, while you and the older tour the museum.

A relatively new enclosure is the Museo Nacional de la Caña La Zafra (National Museum of Caña La Zafra), where you can learn about the history, clothing and machines that intervene in the making process of sugar, panela, piloncillo and cane derived biofuels.

It’s inside the Exhacienda de San Francisco Toxpan, about which we will talk to you later. We just tell you in advance that visiting it is essential.

For 45 minutes, you can visit the place along with an expert, who will share relevant data about this crop that, together with coffee, give identity to the region.

Without fear of being wrong, we bet the Museo del Cafe will become one of your favorites. It has two rooms where coffee working tools are exhibited: they go from quite sophisticated ones to others with great historical value as having been produced during the Industrial Revolution.

In addition to the previous, you’ll find a photographic and lithographic collection that tells a good part of regional’s coffee history. Furthermore, you’ll find a multisensory room, where baristas will give you valuable tips for taking your taste for coffee to the next level.
