    Great museum which reveals a hidden history of Puebla!
    We were having an exquisite breakfast at the downstairs restaurant, and talking with the manager who spoke of the findings at this location. Apparently, the discoveries underneath this amazing place changed everything that archeologists and historians knew about Puebla. The chuchita (female skeleton) that was excavated here changed history. It's a small but wonderful place! A must visit in Puebla!

    Small museum with a interesting tale to tell
    While the museum is small, it tells a great story about Puebla's past with the old burial found there.It's a beautiful building that also features live music and has a great little cafe. I enjoyed my visit there and wouldn't hesitate to bring friends there too.
