Casa de Benito Juárez/Museo Casa de Juárez

Benito Juárez is a big deal in Mexico, and nowhere more so than in his hometown of Oaxaca de Juárez. The Casa de Juárez museum pays homage to the great reform president, and showcases some of the artifacts from his extraordinary journey: Born to Zapotec parents and orphaned as a child, Juarez walked from his home village of Guelatao to the city of Oaxaca, where he was taken in by a bookbinder named Antonio de Salanueva. The Museo Casa de Juárez is located in Salanueva’s former home, where Juarez lived from 1819 to 1834. In addition to information about Juarez’s later life, including his periods of exile and his fight for the separation of church and state, the museum’s displays include the preserved bookbinding shop and other furnished rooms that offer a window into Juarez’s early years in Oaxaca.
