San Miguel de Allende Historical Museum was inaugurated in February 1990. The building was the family house of Ignacio Allende, bought by Guanajuato State government to the last owners that dwelled it until 1979.

This is the first museum restructured as part of the Independence of Mexico Bicentennial celebrations by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

Main restructuring objectives were:

  1. To restore the building’s original dimensions and beauty.

  2. To provide the museum with a solid academic discourse and a contemporary museographic script linked to Ignacio Allende life and role in the beginning of the Independence struggle. To recognize the importance of San Miguel el Grande as an industrial and commercial center in the Bajio region, as well as the ideological birthplace of Independence.

  3. To define museological and operative guidelines of the museum.

  4. To develop its educative communication and divulgation programs.

After San Miguel de Allende Historical Museum was re inaugurated, similar work will extend to other museums in Guanajuato state part of the Independence Bicentennial Route:

  1. “La Francia Chiquita Casa de Hidalgo” Museum in San Felipe.

  2. “Casa de Hidalgo (Curato de Dolores)” Museum in Dolores Hidalgo.

  3. “Alhondiga de Granaditas” Guanajuato Regional Museum in Guanajuato City.
