Museo Histórico de la Sierra GordaEste recinto fue construido en 1576 por órdenes del Virrey Martín Enríquez de Almanza, por lo que es uno de los edificios más antiguos de Jalpan. Funcionó como cárcel por más de 50 años y posteriormente como fuerte militar. En 1991 se fundó el Museo Histórico de la Sierra Gorda, que muestra la herencia artística, cultural e histórica de esta zona. Las ocho salas de exhibición narran la riqueza y diversidad de la huasteca queretana. Una de ellas está dedicada a la Reserva de la Biosfera y funciona como sala interactiva. Otra, a la importancia de la misiones franciscanas. Las demás
exhiben piezas desde el periodo prehispánico hasta la Reforma, incluyendo la conquista y otros movimientos históricos.
