When one thinks of Mexico, perhaps the first image to come to mind is that of a charro or mounted horseman, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, with a blanket draped over his shoulders and a cheroot pursed in the corner of his lips. The history of these horsemen and Charros, the popular equestrian sport, is the subject of this museum. Located in what was once the Convent of Monserrat, the collection includes typical costumes, harnesses, saddles, paintings, photographs and objects related to the past and present of the charreria, one of the Mexico's most symbolic traditions.
