It a wonderful place devoted to the popular arts. It has a wonderful store. And they also have a smaller store in Polanco.
This is a wonderful museum in the Centro historico dedicated to folk art and the artisans who made it and make it nowadays. It is housed in a very interesting building and the exhibits range from pottery to textiles and the rotating exhibits showcase little k own or contemporary artisans. They also have workshops for adults and children. The shop is spectacular and don't miss it. Truly unique works of art for purchase. The staff is very helpful and will pack them carefully. The shop also has a smaller location in Polanco. Don't miss this museum.
This museum has the best shop ever. It offers an incredible array of extremely sophisticated and never junky or touristy Mexican folk art and jewelry. Everything I brought back was a big hit. Two locations, the large store at the museum itself downtown and a smaller but very well edited location in Polanco.
