Museo Casa de Hidalgo
Museo Casa de Hidalgo

Visit this late 18th-century mansion where Mexico’s Founding Father lived in 1819, when it was known as Casa del Diezmo.

During the War of Independence, it was occupied by diverse groups and looted on several occasions.

In 1863 it was declared a National Monument by the president, Benito Juárez. It became a museum in 1946 and today you can visit it and see some of the objects that once belonged to Miguel Hidalgo, such as his priest’s clothing, a flag bearing an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe and an urn that contains the national hero’s remains.
