The Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo Museum is located in the village of Nogueras in the municipality of Comala, and is part of the “Conjunto Cultural Universitario Nogueras”.

The room dedicated to the collection of pre-Hispanic ceramics, originating from the surroundings of Comala and coming from the “tombs of tiro”, in which a great showcase predominates with more than forty recreations of the pre-Hispanic animal world, conceived by the inhabitants of this region.
