"Casamata Museum of Regional History" Matamoros Things to Do Tip by Stephen-KarenConn
Matamoros Things to Do: 6 reviews and 6 photos
Casamata is the only remaining fort, from a series of several small forts which surrounded Matamoros in the mid 1800s. Since 1970 Casamata has housed a museum of regional history, along with a historical library. Although the staff was friendly, we thought the place to be dimly lit and the artifacts poorly displayed. The descriptions are entirely in Spanish, whereas most museums on the north side of the border have signs in both English and Spanish. The history of Matamoros is long and fascinating. We thought it deserved a better treatment. Still this will be an interesting stop for the ardent history buff.
Hours: Monday - Friday 8-4, and Saturday 8-2.
Admission is free.
Address: Calle Santos Degollado and Guatemala
