¡BIENVENIDOS!

Esta historia comienza en el 2010, durante los trabajos de restauración de la casona; en el patio principal se realizaron diversos hallazgos de importancia arqueológica que contribuyen de manera importante al entendimiento de la evolución de la ciudad de Puebla y la vida de sus habitantes y que motivaron el establecimiento del museo, con las siguientes exposiciones:1. "Amos por Siempre": El acervo más grande de ritos funerarios prehispánicos.2. Chuchita: la habitante más antigua de Puebla.3. Talavera Colonial: Patrimonio Cultural Intangible de la Humanidad por la UNESCO.4. Historia de la Restauración de La Casa del Mendrugo.

Casa del Mendrugo Museum is located in a large historic building in the downtown district of Puebla, once part of Saint Jerome Jesuit College, the first Jesuit College. 
And named, according to historians, after the “Mendrugos” (pieces of bread or alms) that the Jesuits received from the parishioners for their support. By the end of the 20th century, its existence as a neighborhood icon ended when it was abandoned and fell into ruins. 
Thanks to the vision and commitment of a local philanthropist and entrepreneur, in 2008 the restoration of the house was begun. 

Contributions from our generous donors make it possible for Casa del Mendrugo Museum to continue presenting our worthy  heritage.

"El Mendrugo y el Zapoteca" Book

“Two stories are woven together in this book, delving into the depths of Mexican history, bringing us a sense of the past that enriches and explains the present.

This book is the story of a happy discovery that brings with it the promise of a blessed future of serenity.”

Ángeles Mastretta. Writer from Puebla. February 2016
