The Pimeria Alta Historical Museum is a great little place to be when wanting to know more about Nogales' History. They are always coming up with ideas to change the exhibits according to upcoming holidays or people in history. Also the staff is always welcoming and warming. You'll be amazed by the knowledge they inform you with and their great hospitality!
