Ágora José González Echeverría Museum

Fresnillo

The 1853 building that houses the Agora José González Echeverría Museum was built to function as La Escuela Nacional de Minas (National Mining School), but later became successively a barracks, a children's hospice, and a Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture).

It was remodeled in 1980 and inaugurated as a museum in September of the same year, with the goal of preserving Fresnillo's cultural heritage, as well as promoting the life and work of its illustrious characters. Currently, it also houses the offices of la Universidad Autónoma de Fresnillo (Autonomous University of Fresnillo).

The nine rooms of the museum are named after famous figures of the city such as Francisco Goitia, Daniel Peralta, Manuel María Ponce, Tomás Méndez, Pedro Valtierra, and Mateo Gallegos. On the other hand, there is a room in homage to Beto Díaz, where his discography is shown.

It also has a room for temporary exhibitions. The permanent collection preserves works of art, photographs, records and antique objects.
