The study presented shows an overview of heritage education in Mexico. It starts from an analytical exploration on the development of the concept of heritage education and programmes evaluation. A mixed research method has been used, in which an analysis of a sample of 100 educational projects is carried out using the SAEPEP-OEPE method, a model developed by Span¬ish Heritage Education Observatory. This method allows the identification, among other aspects, of trends related to heritage categories, project typolo¬gies and audience selection, as well as the quality of educational designs. As a result, five programs with excellent quality in their design are obtained as well as the need to reflect on the concept of heritage, and the possibilities of increasing the impact of experiences through documentation and replication of the exercises.
