Was hoping it would be open by now 04/2018 but unfortunately it was still under construction due to the earthquake and remain closed. I think if it was open I would’ve enjoy the experience and history. Still looking forward to revisit it one day.

This was a nice place to visit. It is well kept and clean. They have a lot of history to help in understanding the Cortes era.

You cannot go into the palace or the museum as it is closed due to earthquake damage. The area around the palace is full of shops and stands selling esquites and gifts.

Due to structural damage from the September 19th 2017 earthquake the site is closed to the public. INAH and México’s Federal engineers are working on accessing damage to make building and grounds accessible to the public.
