Interesting and vast collection of antiquities which Mr Franz Meyer collected over a lifetime, shipping in items from all around the world. This museum shows only a fraction of what he amassed, incredible!

Stunning collections and setting, this is somewhat of a hidden gem, hiding in plain sight, in the heart of Mexico City. The dreamy and romantic courtyard is leafy and green with a lovely cafe adjacent.

We saw a fine exhibtiion of modern chairs, a surprise, as we had gone there for the older material. A few objects stand out: a map/screen of Mexico City; some impressive inlaid furniture from the 18th/19th centuries.

Beautiful, building, beautiful objects, very well displayed. In addition to the permanent collection, there were two excellent exhibitions: one on chairs and one on funcational pottery. The courtyard around the pottery show was particularly peaceful.

My husband and I enjoyed going through this museum, and felt it was worth the visit, although not spectacular. Afterwards, we purchased lunch in the courtyard, which was very nice (both the food and the location). I recommend this museum to others.

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
