Museo Nacional de las Intervenciones provides access to exhibitions relating to a number of battles that Mexico fought against foreign armies, such as the United States, Spain and France. The wars cover the period from 1825 to 1916. This is the reason why it was declared a National Monument in 1869 by President Benito Juárez.
Located in the former convent of Churubusco and administered by the National Institute of Anthropology and History, you can see collections of lithographs, photographs, flags, weapons, cannons, swords, furniture, maps, uniforms and medals.
These artifacts are linked to the various wars or interventions, including the Porfiriato and the Mexican Revolution.
