Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Distinguished Autonomous University of Puebla)
One of the oldest and largest universities in the Americas, BUAP was founded on 15 April 1587 as Colegio del Espíritu Santo. The school was sponsored by the Society of Jesus during most of the Spanish colonial era before changing to a public college in 1825 and eventually a public university in 1937.
Fábrica de Talavera La Colonial (La Colonial Talavera Factory Studio and Showroom, Puebla)
The La Colonial Talavera Factory Studio and Showroom has been a prominent producer of finest-quality, certified Talavera ceramics in Puebla’s central historic district since 1959. In addition to traditional and contemporary ceramics, La Colonial offers fine silver handmade jewelry and locally made artisanal foods, sweets, and wines.
Fototeca Juan Crisóstomo Méndez (Juan Crisóstomo Méndez Photographic Library, Puebla)
Comprised of 15 collections with a total of 230,000 photographic images, the Fototeca was established in 1985 with a collection of photos by Juan Crisóstomo Méndez and opened to the public in 2010 with a new space including galleries, labs, and a research center. This photographic center has not only the goal to promote photographic production of Mexico but to offer diverse education opportunities for a wide range of audiences.
Museo Nacional de los Ferrocariles Mexicanos (National Railway Museum, Puebla)
The National Railway Museum was created in 1988 to preserve, study and promote the railway heritage of Mexico through diverse cultural, recreational, academic, and education activities. The museum's collections include the most important valuables from the Mexican railway system since 1850.
Museo Textil de Oaxaca (Textile Museum of Oaxaca)
The Textile Museum of Oaxaca presents a wide variety of exhibits showcasing the common threads that run through textiles from around the world, with an emphasis on weaving within the Mexican arts tradition. Of the many colonial-era museum renovations, this museum is one of Mexico’s most prestigious. The elegant collection of global weaving traditions is world-class.
