The Museo de Historia Mexicana (only in Spanish) was fantastic; my first trip to Monterrey I spent an hour here but felt I could have done much more! This hands-on museum offered much insight into Mesoamerican Prehispanic society. I find fascinating all the symbolism, advancements in science/mathematics, agriculture and architecture that were made in these ancient civilizations prior to the arrival of the Conquistadores! Learning is made easy & fun with interactive screens that allowed museumgoers to learn about the history of the Mexican forefathers by pushing a computer button. One can make selective queries on topics one wants to learn more about. I think kids with some knowledge of Spanish would enjoy this museum a lot.
This trip, I took my second visit to the Museo de Historia Mexicana to learn about the peoples I missed at the Museo de Antropolgia such as the Purhepecha, the Maya, the Toltecs, the Olmecs, the Zapotecs, the Totonaca. A nice place for people to go in Monterrey who want a quick overview of Mexican History. While there, the museum had a presentation on the omnipresent Jaguar and its importance in Mesoamerican mythology... fascinating.
