The Tlacotalpan Museum would serve to conserve, display and spread the history, traditions and characteristics of the city and the region. It is conceived as a living and dynamic museum, strengthening citizen participation in cultural aspects of the city, and a space for the collective memory—modern, emotional, spectacular—allowing Tlacotalpan people to recognize themselves as the main characters of their history and culture.

The permanent exposition of the museum is organized in thematic units, combining traditional museographic media with cutting-edge technology resources and avant-garde museography, to integrate exhibits that allows visitors of all ages and education levels to approach the history and life of this particular city, which has been declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity Site by UNESCO.
