The Amparo Museum is a collection of buildings in Puebla that house one of Mexico’s largest collections of historical artifacts and works of art. Its beautiful and unique design makes it a highpoint of any visit to the city.
The exhibits at the Amparo Museum cover the span from pre-Hispanic to modern times and it offers guided tours in both English and Spanish. The collections feature a variety of tools, figures, paintings and sculptures from both indigenous people before the Spanish Conquest and a few modern pieces, too. One of my favorite collections was the showcase of the Espinosa family, who lived in the building from 1971 and into the 80s. It features Colonial Puebla-era paintings and furniture, giving a wonderful look into the time period.
The section dedicated to contemporary art is housed in a newer, glass-enclosed area, and offers some pretty unique works of art. However, the Pre-Colombian galleries were the highlight of the trip. Whether you’re a fan of classical art, historical artifacts or contemporary pieces, the wonderful thing about the Amparo Museum is it offers a little of each for visitors to explore.
I would highly recommend a stop at the Amparo Museum when visiting Puebla. Its hours seem to vary throughout the week, so be sure to check out the website for more information on when to visit and how to book a tour.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise.

The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.
