The building’s facade has preserved the turrets with embrasures and battlements in the upper part of the building, adorned with cannonballs. Inside the hall on the left-hand side, visitors can walk through the old barracks and admire an anonymous mural dating from the start of the twentieth century that shows the foundation of Tenochtitlan set in the Bay of Ensenada. The barracks were turned into cells, with guard houses flanking this space. The large entrances to the museum’s galleries in the right-hand wing of the building were big enough for men on horses to pass through. The oral tradition tells us that the back wall was used for executions at the time when the enclosure was a court and prison.c
