AAA Editor Notes
Regional Museum of the Mexican Revolution (Museo Regional de la Revolución Mexicana) is in the historic center at Av. 6 Oriente #206, between calles 2 and 4 Norte. Also known as the House of the Serdán Brothers, Puebla's most visited museum houses the personal belongings of the Serdán family, who played an important role in launching the revolution against dictator Porfirio Díaz. Don Aquiles Serdán and other patriots were killed in this colonial-style house on Nov. 18, 1910. Visitors can see the living room, kitchen and children's bedroom, the house's dispatch office and a shoe workshop (the family ran a nearby shoe business).
A memorial hall is dedicated to Mexican patriots, and one room features locally crafted, painted ceramic tiles emblazoned with an eagle, the country's national symbol. Other displays include a collection of rifles and cannon balls. A short, well-done video recounts the history of the house. Exhibit information is in Spanish.
Flash photography is not permitted.
