Museo Nacional de Historia

El Castillo de Chapultepec se transformó en Museo Nacional de Historia, con base en el decreto por el presidente Lázaro Cárdenas el 31 de diciembre de 1938. Se inició la construcción del edificio en 1785, durante la administración del virrey Bernardo de Gálvez. Se planeó como un palacio de recreo para los virreyes; pero los elevados costos de su construcción impidieron concluirlo. En 1833, durante la administración del presidente Anastasio Bustamante, se decidió que el Castillo se convirtiera en sede del Colegio Militar. Desde 1858 hasta 1939, las habitaciones del Castillo ligadas al jardín aéreo, funcionaron como residencia oficial de los gobernantes de México. English translation:The Chapultepec Castle was transformed into the Museum of National History based on the decree given by President Lázaro Cárdenas on December 31 1939. Construction actually began on the building in 1785, during the administration of the Viceroy Bernardo de Gálvez. It was planned as a recreational palace for the viceroys, but the high construction costs kept it from being finished. In 1833, during the administration of President Anastasio Bustamante, it was decided that the Castle would be converted into the headquarters of the Military College. From 1858 to 1939, the rooms of the Castle that form the second story garden were used as the official resident of the rulers of Mexico.
