Museo Casa de Ignacio Allende
Colonial museum in San Miguel de Allende
Mexico
 

Casa de Ignacio Allende is the birthplace of Ignacio Allende, one of Mexico's great Independence heroes, and it now houses a historical museum. The "Museo Histórico de San Miguel de Allende" has a collection of weapons, documents and other objects that belonged to this independence war hero. Located at 1 Cuna de Allende Street, next to the Parroquia de San Miguel on the main plaza.

I was a bit disappointed that this place only covered Colonial history but it was the house of Senor Allende.  The one set of the girl grinding corn was the extent of average life.  The general store and pharmacy displays were pretty cool.   The people there told me there was no other museum and I was walking around by myself so couldn't ask friends.  It's Ok but just very limited.  There was a very extensive history video running in a few of the rooms
