  • My favorite museum in CDMX. A fabulous, well curated collection of the most amazing folk art you've ever seen. The building is pretty cool as well.

  • A great museum displaying the past and present of Mexican folk art. Beautifully organized. Most signs are written in English and Spanish so it's easy to tour without a guide. I suggest about 90 minutes for this museum.
  • This place is so inspirational! I came out of here and went directly to the art supply store. The displays are bright, colorful, interesting, informative. It's open and airy and not many people around, very enjoyable.
