Divided into three parts, the Tecate Community Museum brings together the things that matter to the people. First, tribute is paid to the kumiai , the natives who spent their days among the oak trees in the area feeding on the acorns that those large trees gave them.
The reproduction of a house built by them, called wa, serves to imagine the roof that protected them. A mural is responsible for showing their daily life, their festivals, their rituals. The next space is dedicated to the era of rancherías and adobe houses made with logs brought from the Sierra Juárez. You look at photos of old Tecate and walk among objects now fallen into disuse: oil lamps, a bulb television, an old sewing machine.
The museography ends with a room dedicated to the time inaugurated by the railway and the industrial progress that the brewery represented. The space has permanent exhibition areas, ethnobotanical gardens, a traditional house and bower, and a gift shop with traditional indigenous crafts.
