Also known as the Museo Cuauhnáhuac, this 16th century palace not only houses Pre-colombian artifacts from the area and takes one on a history tour of Morelos and Cuernavaca, but also showcases Diego Rivera's Mural of the Conquest.

Nice museum with great views inside. Its a good reference spot also. Small tour buses depart from in front of this Palace. There´s a silver and handcraft market right next to it.

“This sumptuous, authentic Mexican hacienda is located in the center of Cuernavaca, the “city of eternal spring.” In the exotic gardens, among the sculptures by Francisco Zúñiga and lush flowers, elegant peacocks strut about and blue parrots perch in the trees. The colonial suites, in their tiled-roof villas, are decorated with beautiful antiques and artworks, including paintings by José Luis Cuevas, Leonardo Nierman and Carlos Mérida. The cuisine goes from traditional Mexican to exquisite international dishes, you have to live the fine service and atmosphere; surrounded by marvelous gardens, exotic birds and an extensive art collection.”
