Museo De La Ciudad - Museum Guadalajara - Mexico

Open since 1992, the Museo de la Ciudad (city museum) has everything you ever wanted to know--and much more--about the city of Guadalajara. There are pictures, maps, charts, letters, dishes, clothing and other artifacts in eight rooms on the first floor, covering the mid-1500s to modern times. Factoids abound, such as: In 1542, the city was founded with 252 Spanish residents. In 1803, Guanajuato was bigger than Guadalajara. And so on. Especially interesting are photos showing what a hotbed of political activity Guadalajara used to be. Captions are in Spanish only, however. Temporary exhibits upstairs in the 18th-century dwelling (once part of a Capuchin convent) add a modern spin to the history lesson.
