A nice place to see some modern art and maybe some air conditioning while in the park, but there are better museums.

Beautiful collection and display of the many handicrafts Mexico has to offer. They are more expensive than in local markets. If you really want to find a good value in handicrafts and life experience to go with it, explore the different regions of Mexico and buy them at the source!

This exhibit focuses on the craft arts, which is arguably as important as "fine arts" . The display is well curated, but missing some dates, which could be useful. The building is of a good scale to spend an hour or two wandering around. If you are after gifts to take home, the museum shop has a good variety of... More

Just had time for a quick visit but free for students and well laid out. Worth a visit just to see the extraordinary Las Dos Fridas painting here - the staff so relaxed..you're allowed to get quite close and take photos without flash - can't imagine being allowed to do this anywhere else! Great little cafe on site too and... More

This is a very interesting museum. You enjoy the traditional art and customs throughout centuries in Mexico. It is a colorful, fun, entertaining experience. There is also a store with cute gifts coming from many different cultures within the country.

You will find in one place all handicraft from around Mexico. you will find some marvelous pieces but also things that can buy on the maket. The store is super expensive. Take some time to go to a fonart store, or the cuidadela (a 10 min walk from there)

On my most recent trip I only visited the shop to check out the folk art on display. This, though, was the first time I have not set aside a few hours to visit this most wonderful of museums. My day began with a walk from the center of town via Madero, with a stop for churros and hot chocolate... More
