The facilities of the former Military College house objects and images that tell the history of Mexico from the time of the Conquest (1521) until the twentieth century. Its rooms cover the different periods that the country has lived through samples of daily life and the social, political, religious and military features that shaped it.


The spaces of the Alcázar are set with furniture, domestic utensils, jewels, paintings and other objects belonging, on the ground floor, to the time when the Castle was inhabited by the emperors Maximilian of Habsburg and Charlotte (1864-1867); and on the top floor, at the time when President Porfirio Díaz and his wife Carmen Romero Rubio occupied the building as a summer house (1883-1910).

In addition to the acclimated rooms, in this area of the Castle, stands the tower known as Caballero Alto, and the gardens designed from the descriptions that were made of the garden during the time of Maximilian.
