The house itself has been beautifully restored, and each room has beautiful collections. I really enjoyed looking at the furniture and the glassware, and the view over Querétaro from the lookout is stunning.

Old home with a very interesting history. Great period furniture. Unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. I would recommend it for people interested in learning about this period of Mexican history.

Fairly organised and regulated for a small place. The entry ticket includes a part guided tour in Spanish followed with relevant videos. If you're a history buff and like connecting with the characters who once lived there - you'd love it!
