Synopsis

Opening as  Aguascalientes Regional Museum of History  in 1988, the former dwelling house was built by architect Refugio Reyes Rivas on the early 20th Century.  The journey through the history of Aguascalientes begins with the first settlers, and goes on through the precolumbian cultures, the Viceroyal period, the 19h century, the Revolution of 1910 and modern Aguascalientes. The collection includes Colonial pieces, as well as historical, religious and contemporary objects, such as lithographies and domestic items. The palenthological materials are remarkable.
