The Museum of Leonese Emigration presents the history of men and women from the province of León, Spain, who emigrated to Mexico to build not the future, but its present.

It is true that the best teaching is the example, and the Leonese who are the protagonists of this museum, instruct us to work the way of our destiny.

The objective is to promote entrepreneurship in children and young people through the example of work and tenacity of emigrants from León in America during the twentieth century, specifically, emigration in Mexico, as well as spread the experience of migrant Leoneses who developed their own businesses in Mexico during the 20th century, promote work and values ¿¿such as honesty, perseverance and respect as fundamental pillars of success, while contributing to the knowledge of local history related to emigration processes in America during the last quarter of the nineteenth century and the twentieth century.

The Museum's mission is to contribute to social development through the promotion of new generations, fostering entrepreneurship so that they are able to develop their own businesses or seek a job that allows them to improve their living conditions, always with the aim of evolving as individuals within the community.

It is an interactive museography, based on current trends in "critical museology" (Spanish-American museums) as well as "engagement" (Anglo-Saxon museums). That is, through interactive teaching modules; interactive digital, audiovisual and analogue, as well as an interaction that allows creating an enveloping environment that manages to signify and involve the visitor with the presented history.
