A similar Museum once existed on Juarez Avenue by the Alameda Park. As I understand, after that was destroyed by an earthquake, this New Museum was established as a replacement. I must say that the old one was never very popular with visitors or locals,...More

Great collection the folk art of Mexico, including common themes, regional variations, materials, etc. One gallery was closed during our visit, but the overall experience was very good. This museum can be seen in a couple of hours, and the shop is very good.

This museum was quite a surprise. Many hand crafted pieces of art both modern, and historical. It has 4 levels, and salons with various pieces of art and artifacts. Very interesting.

a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
