AAA Editor Notes
State Historical Museum (Alhóndiga de Granaditas) is at Mendizábal and 28 de Septiembre (Calle Pocitos), n.w. of the city center; street parking in the immediate area is very limited. This massive 1809 structure was originally a seed and grain warehouse.

Among the varied exhibits are Indian weavings, saddles, leather clothing, hats, tools, pottery, Carnaval masks and a full-sized kitchen with period displays of pots and foods. Upstairs are historical exhibits and a number of pre-Columbian stone artifacts. Murals by José Chávez Morado depicting revolutionary themes embellish the Alhóndiga's stairwells. Bronze busts of War of Independence heroes Hidalgo, Jiménez, Aldama and Allende preside in a hall illuminated by an eternal flame.

Permanent and temporary exhibitions feature the work of Mexican and international artists, and a fine exhibit depicts Guanajuato's historical, social and mining importance through photographs and various artifacts. Exhibit information is in Spanish.

Restrooms are provided.
