The National Museum of History is the site that holds the memory of the history of Mexico, from the conquest of Tenochtitlan, in 1521, to the Mexican Revolution, in the second decade of the 20th century. Its exhibition halls show us a diversity of historical testimonies - such as paintings, flags, documents, weapons, furniture and clothing - that have managed to preserve themselves, and that are representative of four centuries of the history of our country.

The museum is located in the Chapultepec Castle, a historical building of high symbolic value for Mexicans, whose construction began in 1785 during the government of the Viceroy of New Spain, Bernardo de Gálvez. Originally, it was created for rest home, however, through time, it was adapted to its different uses, from Military College, First Astronomical Observatory, resting place during the Second Mexican Empire and presidential residence. Since 1939 it is the home of the National Museum of History. ©
