Regional Museum of Tlaxcala


The Regional Museum of Tlaxcala reopened its doors on December 18th, 2015 after a complete reorganization. The new museological discourse was developed by INAH specialists in history, ethnography, anthropology and archaeology assigned to the INAH Tlaxcala center, who pointed out that a recurrent topic in the history of the region is the cultural exchange, so it’s the conducting thread of the journey that covers from the Paleolithic to the 20th century.

It’s divided into twelve topics: one about the paleontology in the Tlaxcala; four about the pre-Hispanic period; five approach the Viceroyalty, one more about the 19th century and another one of the Mexican Revolution. Two-hundred pieces will be exhibited including paleontological skeletal remains, pottery, sculpture in stone, obsidian knives, snails, paintings, sculptures, books, furniture, documents and photographs. In addition to objects recently discovered such as archaeological remains found in Quimicho and some pieces of majolica of the 16th and 17th centuries.
