Museo Historico Regional in Baja

Ensenada's Regional Historic Museum

The Museo Historico Regional offers a permanent exhibit of "Peoples and Cultures of Mesoamerica", and colonial and indigenous collections related to Ensenada's past.

An interesting aspect is the architecture of this old building that was in use for a full century.

It is a fascinating experience to tour their old cells whose walls still retain the patina of time.

First, it functioned as a fortress, then as a military headquarters, and later as a municipal jail until 1986.

It's probably one of the oldest public buildings in Baja California.

The entrance to the museum is free but donations are appreciated.

Visiting hours: 10 am - 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday. Closed Mondays.

The museum is located near the tourist heart of Ensenada, on Gastelum street, at the entrance to Ensenada, between Calle Primera and Boulevard Costero.
