Los Abuelos Museo was very interesting and full of spectacular period time pieces. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the gift shop very well appointed. I bought the majority of my gifts here. Prices were reasonable.

We went into this museum soon after we got to the town of Tequila, and got a brief guided tour. Much of the information is about the Sauza family, but the old pictures and overview was worthwhile.

This small museum has the history of one of Tequilas oldest families in the business. If you can spare a half hour or so, I recommend you check it out to buy their tequila which is great and comes in a beautifully crafted bottle.

The museum is a nice look at the history of tequila and its introduction to the US about the real Sauza Tequila. They didn't allow pictures in some sections which as a bummer. Nice little gift shop.
