  • Although located at some ditance from the center of Puebla (it is more or less midway between Puebla and Cholula) it is fantastic, created by a Japanese architect. The exhibits are incredible

  • A world class museum. Unmissable if you have even a passing interest in the Baroque influence on art, architecture, music, clothing etc. The building is fantastic and the presentation of information is imaginative and exceptionally clear, in Spanish and English. The guards are way too fussy, but that seems to be normal in Mexico. Don't let that put you off going.
  • A well designed museum which provides important context to appreciate the baroque influence in Puebla. Yet the museum falls flat on two critical points: 1. It is VERY difficult to get to without a car. It is 40 minutes away by public transportation, and none of the local bus drivers have any clue where the museum is. There is no signage or system telling visitors how to get back to the center. I guess Pueblo has given up on the efficient public transportation which makes so many other Mexican cities so enjoyable to visit. 2. The staff act like you are going to steal everything. They follow you everywhere, often walking right behind you and standing very close. You are not allowed to explore on your own, they insist you follow an exact route like cattle. There are also so many of them! Why?! Multiple staff per room and they're always talking on their walkie-talkie, ruining the atmosphere. The management seems clueless about how to run an "international" museum. Disappointing.
