NileGuide Expert tip:
The facade is not neglected. Those holes you see on it are actual bullets holes from the Revolution.
In this museum you'll get the know the motives and how the Revolution was fought. Some documents, furniture, paintings and photographs of the time stand in this historic building as witness of history.
This building used to be the Serdan Alatriste family house. Manuel Serdan and his wife Carmen Alatriste bought it and left it to their kids Aquiles, Carmen and Maximo. All three of them enlisted when the Revolution began. By 1910 Aquiles was the president of the Revolutionary Movement in Puebla and one of the driving forces of the movement in the Country. On november 18th 1910, while the siblings were sleeping, the government forces broke into the house and after a long battle, the two brothers Aquiles and Maximo were killed. Carmen and her mother, who was in the house as well were imprison. The Serdan Siblings, specially Aquiles, are among the most important figures in Puebla's History and celebrated nationwide. The museum was open exactly 50 years after the shooting.
