Royal Houses Museum

A museum of colonial history in a onetime government administration building.

This museum, in a building more than 500 years old at the corner of Calle de las Damas and Calle de las Mercedes, distills the essence of the colonial Old Town in which it’s located. Back in the day, the Museo de las Casas Reales was a guest lodging for important personages as well as a place where official government events were held. Now it’s the only museum of its type in the Americas, documenting colonial history from the conquest itself to the economy, family life, and struggles against piracy.
