National History Museum

The National Museum of History is the site that keeps the memory of the history of Mexico, from the conquest of Tenochtitlan to the Mexican Revolution. Its rooms display a diversity of representative objects from four centuries of Mexican history. The museum is located in the Castle of Chapultepec, whose construction began in 1785 during the government of the viceroy of New Spain, Bernardo de Gálvez. Although it was created as a rest home, over time it was adapted to different uses: it was a military college, an imperial residence with Maximiliano and Carlota (1864-1867), a presidential residence, and, since 1939, the headquarters of the National Museum of History.

The museum has 12 permanent exhibition rooms that present the historical trajectory of the country, from the Conquest to the Mexican Revolution; and 22 rooms in the area known as Alcázar, in which the rooms of Maximiliano and Carlota and President Porfirio Díaz are recreated, as well as a room that recalls the assault on Chapultepec Castle.
