En este sitio reside el más grande acervo visual e histórico de México.

Actualmente la Fototeca Nacional del Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) recibe lo mismo a especialistas que a público en general interesados en conocer sus acervos.

Esta institución fue fundada en 1976, resguarda alrededor de 900 mil piezas fotográficas que cubren 170 años de la fotografía en México, cuenta además con 45 fondos provenientes de diversas adquisiciones y donaciones en donde destaca el Archivo Casasola. En el museo se hace un recorrido por la historia de la fotografía en México y las grandes obras de los creadores.
