Quick visit but worth it

This is very near from the main street and is a quick visit to kind of get an idea of life back then.

I had read a few reviews before visiting the Benito Juarez home, so I knew it would be small. It was small, but very well done as far as the displays. We enjoyed getting a glimpse back in time to how the Juarez family lived. Worth a visit if you are strolling around that part of the city.

We really liked this museum and found it very educational. It is a furnished house which contains many exhibits related to Benito Juarez and the period of Mexican history in which he lived and served as president. Juarez is an important figure in Oaxacan history as well as Mexican history. I recommend a visit.

In you're interested in Mexico's history and visiting Oaxaca, then the home where Benito Juarez lived as a young boy is a place to stop by. He was probably Mexico's most famous President having governed during five terms. When living in Oaxaca, his protector, a bookbinder and friar of the Third Order of San Francisco named Antonio Salanueva owned a... More

Benito Juarez is a very important figure in the history of Mexico. In the rooms of this house where he once lived you can see the types of furniture, dishes, etc that were used in the 1800's when he lived here. Best of all each room has very well written information about his life and his presidency. Well worth a... More

A small traditional colonial house which once was the home of Juarez's patron, who saw the potential in the young lad who arrived unable even to speak Spanish, and saw to his education and set him on his path to become the first indigenous president of Mexico. A set of laminated sheets in English explain the rooms for non-Spanish speakers.

Small house with artifacts from time period that Juarez lived in Oaxaca. Near Santa Domingo Church and worth a visit if you have 15 minutes or so.

Benito Juarez was one, if not, the most important President of Mexico. Visiting this house you will see how he used to live. The house is well mantained and it have original furniture. You can feel the rooms, the patio and the smell ( old ). It is important to visit this house.

Worth popping in more to see what a home in that era might have looked like than for any significant insights it provides into Benito Juarez’s life (I suspect you’ll get more out of it if you can read Spanish). There are artifacts from the period and a few photographs. All the wall displays are in Spanish other than the... More
