Museum of Popular and Indigenous Cultures of Sonora

Museo de Culturas Populares e Indígenas

Known as the Hoeffer home, it was originally owned by Dr. Alberto Hoeffer. He began construction on it in 1904.

This museum is dedicated to researching, promoting, and spreading the popular culture of Sonora. Its architecture reflects the French influence that was so popular during the Porfiriato period. Currently, it is home to a wealth of state history. It has two exhibit halls and murals portraying Sonora’s ethnic groups, painted by Ethel Cook. It offers temporary exhibitions and artistic events such as plays, visual arts shows, and musical events.
