Museo Casa Natal de Morelos

Museum in Morelia

Our Review

Independence leader José María Morelos y Pavón is king in Morelia – after all, the city is named after him. He was born at the site of this house; an eternal flame in the patio marks the spot where his mother, Juana Pérez Pavón, delivered him on her way to Mass on September 30, 1765. Now housing a museum in his honor, the collection of old photos and documents in eight rooms is poignant, but not as comprehensive as the better-curated Museo Casa de Morelos.
