Casa Grande Museum

Step inside the hacienda’s Casa Grande (The Big House), now a museum open to the public only at the weekends. Pay attention to the 1875 map that shows the full extent of the old territory: it was sketched by Ferdinand von Rosenzweig, the same Austrian engineer who built the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City. You will see, among other things, wardrobes, washbasins, brass bedframes, a 19th-century dining table, a kitchen of wood-fired ovens, fishing instruments, a black and white portrait of Don Manuel Cánovas, as well as the dressing table given to Guadalupe Cánovas by Porfirio Díaz on her wedding day.
